Van Damme resignation from the DA shocked everyone earlier this year , it was not clear what led to her decision even though they have been reports that in the DA black people are being mistreated.
However today Van Damme revealed on her twitter account what led to her resignation , she revealed what caused her resignation because she said John Steenhuizen who is the party leader lied about what led to her resignation on the media .
Van Damme said what led her to resignation from the party was after she was told to delete her Facebook by the chief whip of the DA Natasha Mazzone , which by the way is censoring another member and infringing their privacy .
“The day I resigned, I was told by the Chief Whip, Mazzone to lay off Facebook, I could not do that and compromise my values so I resigned” Van Damme said .
Van Damme added that she was not going to engage about this because she emphasized to the leadership of the DA when she left that she must be left alone and she will precisely leave them alone . “I have literally been minding my business. You wanted me not to go after Facebook because it might affect the parties' votes, I said no “ Van Damme said .
Van Damme told Steenhuizen to keep her name out of his mouth . “ Drag me, I will drag you. I have way more material on you, Try me.” Van Damme Warned the DA leader .
Van Damme also provided the conversation she was having with Chief whip of DA Natasha Mazzone , that conversation is the one which led to the resignation of Van Damme after she refused to delete her Facebook as per the direction of the DA Chief whip .
Van Damme said she is very happy that her name is no longer associated with the joke the DA has become under the leadership of steenhuizen. Van Damme further said Steenhuizen is the country's laughingstock and in the DA.
“ I was not going to engage in war but you just couldn't keep your trap shut could you steenhuizen ? Mention my name again. I beg.” Van Damme said .
Racism in the DA was shown also after the white fomer party leader Tony Leons refereed to the black former leader of the the DA Mmusi Maimane as the “failed experiment “ in his book .
