COPE MP crosses over to the DA

WEARING a blue DA T-shirt, Nqaba Bhanga said the decision to cross the floor to the official opposition was not about him but for the people of South Africa.

The former ANC member-turned- COPE MP was introduced yesterday as the DA's newest recruit to hundreds of members in Nangoza Jebe Hall in New Brighton, Port Elizabeth.

Eastern Cape DA leader Athol Trollip also named Bhanga, 36, as the party's new Ngqura constituency leader.

Addressing the gathering, Bhanga said joining the DA was not an easy decision. -
