ANC in Tshwane calls for council sitting to hear no confidence motions amid speaker's suspension

- | 4 weeks ago

Following the suspension of the Tshwane speaker, the ANC in the capital city are striking while the iron is hot and are calling for the continuation of a special council meeting to table motions of no confidence against the mayor and three others.

On Thursday, Gauteng Cogta MEC Lebogang Maile announced the suspension of Katlego Mathebe, the speaker of the Tshwane council. Maile's rationale behind Mathebe's six-month suspension without pay follows a special council sitting where she refused to bend to calls by the ANC and EFF to change the order in which motions of no confidence would be heard.
