A planned Tshwane special council meeting to be held on Tuesday, amid the announcement that the City will be placed under administration, is expected to end before it starts as the ANC and EFF will not be in attendance.

The council sitting, called by the speaker’s office, intends to deal with the election of a mayor, the extension of the acting city manager’s period of service and the proposed 2019/2020 adjustments budget. It is expected that this meeting will not come to fruition as the ANC and the EFF told News24 they wouldn’t be attending council.

ANC chairperson in Tshwane, Dr Kgosi Maepa, said the ANC would not be there, following the announcement that the City would be placed under administration, the council dissolved, and by-elections set to go ahead.
