THE DA in the West­ern Cape has been thrown into tur­moil by Len­nit Max who has chal­lenged the out­come of a re­cent pro­vin­cial lead­er­ship elec­tion.

Max had lost out to Bonginkosi Madik­izela, who emerged as the suc­ces­sor of Cape Town mayor Pa­tri­cia de Lille dur­ing the elec­tion.

Max claimed that ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties had cost him the win and asked for doc­u­ments and video footage of the con­fer­ence af­ter which he lodged an ap­peal against the lead­er­ship elec­tion re­sult.

Last month, ANC pro­vin­cial sec­re­tary Faiez Ja­cobs claimed “the DA West­ern Cape is split down the mid­dle”. hen con­tacted by The New AgeMax de­clined to com­ment.
