The intrigue in the ANC and EFF’s attempts to remove the DA’s Stevens Mokgalapa as mayor of Tshwane deepened on Wednesday afternoon… This after the two parties wrote to speaker Katlego Mathebe demanding that their motions of no confidence against Mokgalapa and his entire mayoral committee be discussed on Wednesday.
The letter, sent last Friday, was accompanied by a petition signed by 89 councillors from both parties. Wednesday morning, Mathebe announced that she “has thoroughly examined the documents supporting the petition submitted to her” to ascertain whether the petition fully complies with the requirements of Section 29(1) Local Government: Municipal Structures Act No. “She found seven (7) 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 the 05 December 2019,” reads the statement.
