'Those are blatant lies' - DA city manager on embezzlement accusations
The African National Congress (ANC) Tshwane region chairperson Kgosi Maepa has accused the mayor and city manager Moeketsi Mosola of embezzling funds from the city to fund the Democratic Alliance (DA).
The ANC has hit hard at the DA, calling for the removal of Mosola in recent weeks, with Maepa believing that the city manager is taking the fall for the DA.
The party has announced that it will table a motion of no confidence in mayor Solly Msimanga.
Speaking to Africa Melane DA national spokesperson Solly Malatsi who says there is no truth in what the ANC is saying.
Those are blatant lies and I think the challenge that I would like to put Maepa is to present any strand of evidence about that.Solly Malatsi, DA national spokesperson
I think it is high time that we hold politicians accountable for the lies that they spread. And if he had any evidence, he would have presented it there at the press conference that he held to make those claims.Solly Malatsi, DA national spokesperson
