NMB Black Business Caucus wants meeting with city, ANC over Andile Lungisa
A group of small business owners have vowed to fight the ANC provincial executive committee's decision to order councillor Andile Lungisa to step down as a mayoral committee member.
CAPE TOWN – The Nelson Mandela Bay Black Business Caucus is hoping to meet with the city manager and African National Congress (ANC) leadership in the Eastern Cape.
A group of small business owners has vowed to fight the party's provincial executive committee's decision to order councillor Andile Lungisa to step down as a mayoral committee member.
Lungisa was put in the post after the Democratic Alliance's Atholl Trollip was ousted and he's also appealing his conviction and sentence for assaulting a fellow councillor.
The Black Business Caucus's Lithemba Singaphi says: "The PEC and the DSG have arrived to continue disbandment of the region and you will remember that there was a letter which we wrote to SG requesting the top five in business to come and meet."
