Following Dr Mpho Phalatse's resignation as a public representative councillor in the city of Johannesburg, the DA in Joburg has revealed that Phalatse will be solely missed.

Phalatse who was the metro's former mayor and former caucus leader of the party, announced her resignation in a media statement on Monday the 28th of August 2023.

Upon her resignation, Phalatse cited that the political instability in Joburg is one of the main contributors to her departure from council.

While Phalatse will continue being a DA member, DA caucus spokesperson, Devon Steenkamp has reiterated Dr Phalatse will be sorely missed in her official capacities.

"We will immensely miss Dr Phalatse as a councillor in the city however, we are gratified to share that she remains an unwavering member of the Democratic Alliance and we respect her decision as it was made in the best interest of her personal and professional growth and we fully support her future endeavours," Steenkamp added.

Meanwhile, DA's Belinda Kayser-Echeozonjoku described Phalatse's resignation as a loss for the party.
