DA, coalition partners move to expel UDM after & # 39; betrayal & # 39;
The DA and its coalition partners have taken the first step to break ties with the United Democratic Movement (UDM) after the "betrayal" this week.
The DA and its coalition partners, including the ACDP, Cope and the Freedom Front Plus, have jointly written a letter to UDM leader Bantu Holomisa calling on the coalition partner's president to motivate why his party should remain part of the coalition agreement.
This follows a tumultuous week that began by removing the DA's Jonathan Lawack as a speaker in the Nelson Mandela Bay council on Monday, followed only a few hours later by the deposition of Mayor Athol Trollip.

OPINION: a possibility to reset
Theresa May's visit was perhaps the most important visit of a G7 leader on our shores in recent times. May has not come here to be nice and talkative. She and her country need friends and markets in a re-calibrated world.
This puts Africa in a stronger position to drive good deals and relationships with peers than in the past. It is not possible to be wasted. For South Africa it is also an opportunity to be a bit selfish. We do not have to do everything as a continent, writes Mondli Makhanya.
