Meanwhile, Mosola suspects he's being targeted by the Msimanga administration because he spearheaded the removal of got rid of Marietha Aucamp.
Mosola launched an investigation into Aucamp after she was found to have misrepresented her qualifications.
She was appointed to the mayor's office in later 2016, earning over R1 million per annum.
