Khume Ramulifho Resigns from DA, Labels it a Stagnant Organisation with Lackluster Leadership



Khume Ramulifho quit the DA

In a surprising move, Khume Ramulifho quit the DA, citing it as a stagnant organisation with uninspiring leadership. Ramulifho, who joined the DA in 1998 when it was still the Democratic Party, expressed his disappointment with recent events, indicating that he felt undervalued, as reported by EWN.

Despite his extensive contributions and dedication, the former national youth leader faced setbacks within the DA, notably losing the bid for Gauteng leader in 2023 and an unsuccessful attempt to be Federal Council chair in 2019. Ramulifho had contemplated leaving the party for several months, and his departure marks another significant exit of a prominent black leader from the DA.

In a candid assessment, Ramulifho stated that the DA had reached a climax and seemed directionless, leading to his decision to seek a more promising political home. Expressing his concerns about the lack of programs and a sense of surrender within the DA, Ramulifho emphasised the need for continuous initiatives to drive the party’s agenda forward.

Joining RISE Mzansi, Ramulifho aligns himself with a growing faction of former DA members who opted not to join Herman Mashaba’s ActionSA but seek an alternative platform. While he had been a prominent voice on education matters in Gauteng, frequently addressing the shortcomings of the African National Congress government in managing the province’s schools, Ramulifho believes his efforts can be better utilised elsewhere.


As Ramulifho navigates this political transition, his departure raises questions about the DA’s internal dynamics and challenges in retaining influential members.
