'DA must just accept defeat' - Mongameli Bobani
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.

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.Kgosi Maepa, ANC Tshwane regional chairperson
