In a statement,he EFF expressed disappointment in the resignation of Mmusi Maimane.

"As the EFF we worked with him well to unseat the irreparably corrupt ANC following the outcomes of the 2016 Local Government Elections. As leader of a white dominated DA, we could hold his hand in protests that required all of us to put the country above ideological differences. This is also because of his tenacity and absolute willingness to hear and work out different perspectives," said spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.

He said Maimane's resignation must go down in history as a fundamental failure of non-racialism and democratic tolerance in the Democratic Alliance.

"Maimane almost always faced an impossible task in leading the DA to transcend its white dominated nature."

The EFF went on to commend the former leader for exposing the DA as a party that cannot be an alternative to the ruling ANC.
