The DA has stripped suspended Nelson Mandela Bay Metro DA councillor, Stanford Slabbert of his party membership after a disciplinary committee found him guilty of circulating an offensive and racist e-mail, criticising President Jacob Zuma.

In the e-mail Slabbert said Zuma had more wives than brain cells.

Eastern Cape DA leader, Athol Trollip says the party followed due processes.

“There were charges brought against Cllr Slabbert. He’s been guilty on three of the four charges. They are constitutional breaches due to him circulating racist and offensive email. The sanction has been, he’s found guilty and the finding is that membership is terminated meaning no longer member of DA. He has one more avenue to follow; an appeal through federal legal commission.”
