The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in Tshwane says it blundered in supporting the outgoing mayor Solly Msimanga, who was on Tuesday replaced by Stevens Mokgalapa from the same Democratic Alliance (DA) political party.

EFF Tshwane regional chairperson Moafrika Mabongwana told Council that his party did not support the nomination and election of incoming Tshwane Mayor Stevens Mokgalapa because they knew “very little” about him. “We want to be clear to the people of Tshwane that we did not vote for the new executive mayor [Mokgalapa], precisely because there is little known about him.

We cannot risk supporting a person of unknown credentials and capacity to lead a municipality as big as Tshwane,” Mabongwana said shortly after Mokgalapa’s election.
