Cape Town DA councillors suspended for voting against party directive
The five councillors apparently ignored a party directive to vote for the party's preferred candidate for subcouncil chairperson in Kraaifontein.
CAPE TOWN - Five Democratic Alliance (DA) councillors in the City of Cape Town have been suspended from caucus activity pending an internal investigation into allegations they voted against the party's preferred candidate for Ward 2 subcouncil chairperson in Kraaifontein.
The councillors apparently ignored a party directive to vote for Clive Justus and instead voted for Grant Twigg.
The DA’s Anneke Scheepers said, “There was a directive given for the DA's preferred chairperson Clive Justus and then the councillors voted for another councillor, which is essentially against the directive given to them.”
