Herman Mashaba says he chooses "his people over his party".

With those words, he announced his resignation as Johannesburg Mayor and as a member of the Democratic Alliance. Mashaba says he cannot work with people who think race is irrelevant when it comes to addressing socio-economic issues.

His resignation follows Helen Zille's election as DA Federal Council Chairperson yesterday.
