One South Africa Movement leader Mmusi Maimane said that Tony Leon’s “experiment” remarks were a stark reminder that South Africa had a long way to go in building a non-racial country.

He hit back at the former Democratic Alliance (DA) leader after he referred to Maimane as “an experiment gone wrong” during an interview with News24. First, he took Twitter to slam at Leon’s for his remarks.

“I wanted the people to really be that party that sits in the centre. That reason was rejected by the DA and as you’ve opened up now it’s been the return to almost the fightback campaign and the consolidation of minoritism, which is not a project that I’m willing to be engaged with, which is why I had to leave,” Maimane said.
