Siviwe Gwarube, DA Chief Whip on “How to make Parliament relevant to all”
Siviwe Gwarube became Chief Whip of the official opposition in Parliament in August last year. She began her political career as a professional staff member working with then DA parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko in 2012 and is a rising star in the party.
Gwarube has called for what she believes are necessary reforms of Parliament to insulate critical democratic institutions from political interference, corruption and ruin. She has said that not enough is being done by Parliament to hold the executive to account and this needs to be done across party lines.
She will address the Cape Town Press Club on ways to make Parliament relevant to all South Africans, and how to prepare for a possible post-ANC majority reality in 2023, after the critical national elections which hold the real prospect of potentially unstable coalitions gaining power.
