Lindiwe Mazibuko (born 9 April 1980) is a South African politician, and the Parliamentary Leader for the opposition Democratic Alliance. She is the country’s fourth youngest parliamentarian. She was elected the new DA parliamentary leader on 27 October 2011.
A graduate of the University of Cape Town, Mazibuko wrote her thesis on the Democratic Alliance after then party leader Tony Leon stepped down in 2006. Upon graduating Mazibuko took up a post in the DA as the party’s media liaison officer in Parliament.
Labelled a “star performer” by party leader Helen Zille, Mazibuko became a parliamentary candidate for the party in the 2009 general elections. She appeared third on the DA’s KwaZulu-Natal list, thus qualifying for a seat in Parliament as the DA retained its status as official opposition. She was subsequently appointed as the DA’s Shadow Deputy Minister of Communications, and also succeeded Donald Lee as the party’s National Spokesperson.
