The DA has laid charges of fraud against the leadership of the ANC in Tshwane, accusing them of forging the signatures of at least seven of its own councillors in a bid to hold a special council sitting to hear a motion of no confidence against Stevens Mokgalapa.

The ANC and EFF submitted a letter to council speaker Katlego Mathebe on January 3, requesting that a special council meeting be held to hear a motion of no confidence against the mayor, speaker and chair of chairs. News24 previously reported that the sitting was not granted by Mathebe because she said she found seven signatures in the ANC caucus document that do not match the signatures in the files of the Council Meetings Attendance Registers.

"The same document also looks like a copy and paste of the signatures that were submitted to support the request of the meeting of 5 December 2019," Mathebe said in a statement.
