Mmusi Maimane’s One South Africa Movement will join forces with the new organisation of former ANC member Neil de Beer. Newsflash reports that De Beer announced he had resigned from the ANC after more than 30 years with the party. He says his new organisation, the United Independent Movement, is a civil society movement with a vision to educate South Africans about their right to elect independent candidates to public office. Maimane believes the partnership will bring about a new model of direct governance.
