Mayor of Cape Town Patricia de Lille will remain in office while the DA’s legal commission takes disciplinary action against her for bringing the party into disrepute and maladministration.
She is accused of driving divisions in the DA’s city caucus through a leadership style that councillors say is autocratic.
According to EWN reporter Lindsay Dentlinger, de Lille has revealed that she will finally get the opportunity to defend herself and challenge what other councillors have been saying about her.
She is welcoming this decision and welcoming that she is not suspended while this process unfolds.— Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
Dentlinger says the DA's Federal Executive says it wants this matter to be wrapped up as soon as possible and has give the Legal Commission 60 days to wrap up the disciplinary process.
