DA MP Manny de Freitas has been fired by the party after admitting to fraud.
The DA has fired veteran MP Manny de Freitas and kept quiet about it, even though he committed financial misconduct and allegedly funded current leader John Steenhuisen’s 2020 internal campaign.
That is how the DA – which is campaigning on a ticket of a corruption-free government – dealt with an internal fraud scandal that led to the firing of De Freitas, a senior party official who served as the party’s transport and tourism spokesperson.
Ironically, De Freitas himself, on occasions, issued statements where he lamented government corruption.
