'We have a strong case against de Lille'
The ANC in the Western Cape wants the Public Protector to investigate allegations that Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille used public money to renovate her home.
The party wants the Public Protector to investigate allegations that de Lille used public money to renovate her home.
On Thursday, the city's speaker issued a statement saying the council only paid for security upgrades prescribed by police after a security risk assessment.
De Lille also issued a statement on Monday saying she has proof that she paid for renovations at her house.
But the ANC's Xolani Sotashe says the party's legal team is preparing documentation to be submitted to the Public Protector on Monday.
“When we were giving them instructions last night, they looked through the papers. They are quite confident that we’ve got a strong case against de Lille.”
Both de Lille and Mayoral Committee Member JP Smith were placed on special leave this week when tensions over the upgrades escalated into a public spat.
