After mounting allegations of corruption in the ANC camp, DA leader Mmusi Maimane has called on the ANC to "split" into two.

The two factions being: those who support corruption and those who oppose it.

Maimane took to Twitter on Saturday. "Let the ruling party split. So these who are committed to corruption work together and stand for an election, and those who are opposed to corruption and building a constitutional democracy join forces. That's the choice that must be presented to voters. We must bring change".

His comments follow a exclusive report which uncovered leaked emails from the heart of President Cyril Ramaphosa's succesful 2017 ANC presidential campaign. This revealed names of some of his potential donors. It further undermined the defence that Ramaphosa was kept at arm's length of his funders.

Maimane further responded to the report by tweeting:

"Expect more of this, as the governing party collapses with deployees and state fighting each other. Our greatest challenge is that we have An economy in distress, and a country that must focus on jobs and the future. Let's reform our politics on those who share values work together".
