CAPE TOWN - Nelson Mandela Bay council Speaker Jonathan Lawack has is following a vote of no confidence against him.

The motion was brought by the United Democratic Movement (UDM).

It's being reported that the motion passed by 60 votes to 59.

The motion was brought by the UDM’s regional chairperson Mongameli Bobani who is also the former deputy mayor.

He says the motion passed by 60 votes to 59 because Democratic Alliance (DA) councillor Mxolisi Manyathi abstained.

“The opposition is having 60%, one DA councillor didn’t vote and then the DA was dropped to 59. The majority of councillors carried the vote.”
