Watch: Mmusi Maimane roasted by BBC journalist

DA leader, Mmusi Maimane, faced fresh accusations that the political party is a white party with a black face in an interview with the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation).

The Democratic Alliance elected Maimane as its first ever black leader in May, after long serving leader Helen Zille stepped down.

Maimane faced a barrage of questions from Zeinab Badawi, a Sudanese-British television and radio journalist on the Beeb’s HardTalk news cast.

Badawi questioned the DA’s continual allegations of corruption charges against president Jacob Zuma for his homestead at Nkandla, which the journalist said are unsubstantiated.

Badawi also questioned the DA’s motives relating to the Marikana shooting in August 2012, in which 34 miners were shot and killed.
