Vote of no confidence

Dr Ntsikelelo Breakfast, says the DA forgets that it came to power through a coalition government.

Former mayor Athol Trollip has been ousted from the job through a no-confidence motion vote on Monday which also saw the city council Speaker Jonathan Lawack booted out.

The United Democratic Movement (UDM)'s Mongameli Bobani was elected in his place.

Bobani, who was former deputy mayor, was previously ousted from his position following a rift with Trollip.

The Democratic Alliance (DA), for its part, insists that Trollip has not been removed and that the sitting that sought to do so was illegal.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa Political Analyst at Stellenbosch University Dr Ntsikelelo Breakfast says he didn't see the ousting coming.

However, I think the DA forgot that they didn't win in a way that was fair and square in 2016.

They came into the helm of power, precisely because they joined forces with other opposition parties.

He adds that Trollip is out because everything was done within the framework of the law.
