- | 2 weeks ago

Fifteen ANC councillors in Mpumalanga have been expelled for colluding with some opposition political parties and illegally removing the mayor of the Dr JS Moroka Local Municipality, Thulare Madileng, from office.

On Tuesday, the party's Nkangala regional secretary, Leah Mabuza, said the councillors were expelled on Monday with immediate effect. She added they had signed a motion and actively participated in a council meeting in Siyabuswa on October 23 last year which saw the ousting of Madileng.

Mabuza said the motion was initiated by the EFF in the council and supported by other opposition parties, including the DA, African People's Convention (APC) and an unnamed independent councillor.
