JOHANNESBURG – Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga says the reason behind the move to suspend the city manager Moeketsi Mosolo is due to his underperformance.

Mosola on Thursday survived another attempt to suspend him during a council sitting.

He is accused of unlawfully granting engineering firm GladAfrica a multi-billion rand contract.

Msimanga tried to table a report to motivate for Mosola's suspension on Thursday but African National Congress (ANC) and Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) councillors voted that it be postponed to the next sitting next year.
