DA 'canvassing' for votes in Nelson Mandela Bay

The municipality says allegations by the DA against its mayor and deputy mayor have no substance.

CAPE TOWN - The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has described charges laid by the Democratic Alliance (DA) against its mayor and deputy mayor as "nothing more than political grand-standing".

The DA has accused the city's leaders of political interference in the administration of the municipality and has opened a criminal case with police.

However, the metro's spokesperson Roland Williams, has dismissed the DA's allegations, saying they bear no substance.

He claims the move could be a political strategy by the DA to canvas for votes.

"Of course political parties from time to time will embark on campaigns which seek to make them relevant to the voters out there and this is simply a case of that."
