At the 11th-hour, Nelson Mandela Bay council speaker Buyelwa Mafaya has cancelled a motion of no confidence in mayor Mongameli Bobani.

News24 understands that councillors received word of the cancellation early on Thursday morning – just hours before it was scheduled to be debated. Mafaya told News24 she could not speak to the media because she was trying to quell fires sparked by her decision.

NMB spokesperson Mthubanzi Mniki confirmed the early morning communication, which states that there were security risks linked to the combined special and ordinary meeting.
