Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga is set to face a motion of no confidence in a Tshwane council sitting brought by the African National Congress (ANC) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

Speaking to Clement Manyathela on The Midday Report, Professor Dirk Kotze says taking into account what happened at Nelson Mandela Bay where Trollip lost his position as mayor.

This is an important one because if the same happens here, it can be seen by the public as a trend that is emerging.

Professor Dirk Kotze, Political Analyst

He adds that the vote is very important and Tshwane is even more important as the administrative capital of South Africa.

And it is one of the key metros that they control in Gauteng, given next year election and the provincial elections specifically, this is in a base which the DA wants to launch themselves for next year's elections.

Professor Dirk Kotze, Political Analyst

He adds that if the DA loses, it will be a major set back for them.

Manyathela also spoke to DA leader Mmusi Maimane who says they have spoken to coalition parties and they remain resolute.

We remain resolute and we remain firm.

Mmusi Maimane, DA Leader

We think that what is happening here is important for the people of Tswhane. We want to continue to deliver basic services.

Mmusi Maimane, DA Leader
