The African National Congress (ANC) in Tshwane on Thursday said the current uncertainty over the future of mayor Stevens Mokgalapa is distressing residents and crippling service delivery.
Addressing a media briefing, ANC Tshwane regional chairperson Kgosi Maepa said the Democratic Alliance must come clean and clarify Mokgalapa’s future, particularly in the wake of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema suggesting that Mokgalapa was “a caretaker mayor”. “Today Councillor Steven ‘Gimmicks’ Mokgalapa will deliver a budget speech to the people of Tshwane.
What we would like to ask is whether he is delivering his last speech before taking off to Cape Town [Parliament]? That is the question,” said Maepa at the briefing at Tshwane House.
