Speaking on how he felt about her running for the DA federal chair position, Maimane said Zille was entitled to stand for any position she likes.
“Candidates must campaign. The only conditions upon which I will not work with any candidate is when we depart from the principle of a non-racial SA, one based on justice,” he said.
As far as his relationship with Zille was concerned, Maimane said it was “professional”.
“We’ve disagreed fundamentally on issues but I treat her with the professional courtesy she deserves.”
