Tshwane Speaker Katlego Mathebe has convened a special council meeting for Thursday, 16 January at 10am at Thswane House Council Chamber.

This comes after two failed attempts by the EFF and ANC to convene a special council meeting to oust the DA leadership in Tshwane, and the two parties issuing threats of legal action. The Office of the Speaker said in a statement that given the constructs that the ANC and EFF caucuses have been creating in the public domain suggesting that she is denying to convene such a meeting as per their request, the office “deems it to put things in perspective”.
