The ANC in Tshwane is adamant that a special council meeting will sit tomorrow to remove DA officials running the country’s capital.

On Tuesday, the ANC caucus announced that it had submitted a joint petition with the EFF to speaker Katlego Mathebe for her to call a special council meeting on January 8. “In terms of section 29 [1] of the Municipal Structures Act, a majority of councillors can petition the speaker to call a special meeting to deal with council business and important matters in a set agenda.

The speaker must then call that meeting, it is not her discretion but the meeting is mandatory,” said ANC regional chairperson Kgosi Maepa.
