A strong Christian faith, a passion for South Africa, and a mutual love and respect for each other are what hold Natalie (33) and Mmusi (37) Maimane together…

The multi-cultural power couple has captured the attention of the South African public since Mmusi was elected leader of the Democratic Alliance in May 2015. In addition to his political career, he is also a pastor and elder of the Liberty Church.

Recently, Natalie Maimane honoured her husband at the Democratic Alliance’s elective conference where Mmusi remained the uncontested leader.

“The vision our family sacrifices for, and that we as a couple wish to see as a reality is a vision that Mmusi Maimane has carried in his heart from even before I met him as a 19-year-old youth pastor,” she told delegates.

“It is the vision of a South Africa that protects the faith of ALL of its people, provides a platform for the dreams of ALL of its children, with an economy that is accessible to all of its people. And underpinning all this, a government whose highest value is to serve its citizens. It is with confidence and absolute unwavering support that I can affirm, we are led.”
