DA: Too soon to say who'll replace ousted Nelson Mandela Bay deputy mayor
Eastern Cape DA leader Qaba Bhanga says the reason for showing Nelson Mandela Bay deputy mayor Mongameli Bobani the door is because he's been making the coalition unstable.
CAPE TOWN - The Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan coalition government is in jeopardy.
This follows the axing of the United Democratic Movement’s (UDM) Mongameli Bobani.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) in the Eastern Cape says it's too soon to discuss who will take over from ousted Nelson Mandela Bay deputy Mayor Mongameli Bobani.
Patriotic Alliance member Marlon Daniels brought the motion to council, and it was seconded by Eastern Cape DA leader and mayoral committee member Qaba Bhanga.
Longstanding conflict between DA Mayor Athol Trollip and Bobani led to the motion of no confidence in the deputy mayor.
Bhanga says the reason for showing Bobani the door is because he's been making the coalition unstable.
“As coalition partners, we felt like we needed to move forward. People are waiting for service delivery, but this unstable conduct by the deputy mayor is preventing us from moving forward.”
