Lindiwe Mazibuko confirms leadership bid
27 September 2011
Democratic Alliance national spokesperson Lindiwe Mazibuko has confirmed that she will stand for the post of parliamentary leader of the party in an internal election at the end of next month.
The 31-year-old Member of Parliament will oppose veteran MP and Eastern Cape leader Athol Trollip.
Mazibuko has Wilmot James and Watty Watson as her running mates.
If she wins, she will be the DA's first black leader in Parliament. But she says there will still be plenty of room for white males in the party.
