JOHANNESBURG – Former Democratic Alliance (DA) MP Phumzile van Damme has confirmed that she has terminated her membership in the party.

Van Damme, who took to Twitter on Saturday to make the announcement, said her decision was based on what future projects she would work on.

She said her party membership could become problematic in the future as the monitoring and anti-disinformation project rolls out during election season.

Van Damme resigned as an MP last month – she said she was leaving the party and parliament, due to her dissatisfaction with a “clique of individuals”.

She later clarified that she actually said in her deputy resignation letter to the prosecutor that she would remain with the prosecutor.
