Mangaung Mayor survives another motion of no confidence vote

- | 4 weeks ago

A motion of no confidence against Mangaung Metro Mayor Olly Mlamleli failed after 54 African National Congress (ANC) councilors, 34 Democratic Alliance (DA) councilors, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and Freedom Front Plus (FF+) voted on the motion.

ANC councilors voted against the motion, while DA, EFF and FF+ councilors voted for the removal of Mlamleli and two councilors abstained. The DA had brought forward the motion after the Metro was placed under administration and had wanted a secret ballot to ‘protect’ councilors from intimidation, however, the council speaker ruled against it and the vote took place by show of hands.

DA councilor Mokgadi Kganakga says she is surprised by the latest outcome.
