Athol Trollip was voted out as executive mayor of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality earlier on Monday.

The United Democratic Movement's Mongameli Bobani says the Democratic Alliance must accept defeat after Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality mayor Athol Trollip was ousted in a motion of no confidence vote.

Trollip was voted out, following a motion of no confidence in speaker Jonathan Lawack earlier on Monday.

According to reports, the DA has come out to say that moves within the metro's council to replace the mayor and mayoral committee are unlawful.

Bobani joined Karima on the Karima Brown Show. He says the party has no case and that proper procedures were followed.

Everything that happened today happened through all the necessary procedures and pieces of legislation of the council.

Meanwhile in Johannesburg, City of Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga will have his day before the city council on Thursday as the African National Congress and the Economic Freedom Fighters prepare to table a motion of no confidence against him.

The motion comes amid allegations that Msimanga was aware of an irregular R12 billion tender awarded to engineering consultancy company GladAfrica.

ANC Tshwane regional chairperson Dr Kgosi Maepa is confident that they will get the necessary votes.

With the evidence that we have, we are pursuing on principle, we are saying Councillors must support the ANC in a vote of no confidence in the mayor in a secret ballot.

We are going to get substantial votes from all political parties in council. Black members in the DA are actually rejecting the DA, the whistleblowers have come from the DA in many instances.
