[LISTEN] What’s happening in Knysna is madness - WC DA leader

CapeTalk host Kieno Kammies interviews Western Cape Democratic Alliance leader Bonginkosi Madikizela after Eleanore Bouw-Spies was ousted as mayor.

CAPE TOWN - Western Cape Democratic Alliance leader Bonginkosi Madikizela has described the political situation is Knysna as “madness”.

Last week, the DA’s Eleanore Bouw-Spies was ousted as mayor following a motion of no confidence tabled by the ANC. The Speaker of the Eden District municipality, the DA’s Mark Willemse, is the new mayor. However, the party has called on him to step down.

“The party made it very clear that we are a party of due processes. This is not how things are done. We have a situation where someone is the mayor of Knysna but also the speaker of the Eden District which is illegal. This is why we told Mark Willemse to resign.”
