#VoteOfNoConfidence

Msimanga says this vote of no confidence against him is an attempt by the ANC to gain power in Tshwane.

Mayor of Tshwane Solly Msimanga will be facing a motion of no confidence on Thursday.

Going into the Council meeting, Msimanga says he's got nothing to fear and he will still be mayor of Tshwane on Friday morning.

When people think that they've won, they make a whole lot of silly mistakes and they will play themselves out today

People are not stupid to see that this is a political gimmick, this is the ANC's attempt to gain power after they lost the city and failed to deliver to the people.

Msimanga says his commitment in Tshwane speaks for itself in rooting out corruption in the metro. He says in his tenure he didn't sweep things under the table like the ANC did but brought everything to the council to address all these issues.

He adds that with the issue of qualifications, he had to deal with every individual that was implemented, even went as far as requesting the City manager to conduct an investigation on everyone employed by the City.

If there is any allegation of wrongdoing, we are not going to hide, we will put it on the table and we will expose it.

He says no deals have been struck.

News24 journalist Alex Mitchley says Solly Msimanga's confidence that he will still be mayor seems like there may have been a deal struck because if the ANC decides to vote with the EFF, it would be 106 seats in favour of the motion.

If Msimanga is voted out and the EFF decided to leave the chambers after that, technically the DA will still have the power.

According to the DA, come Tuesday they are going to put Msimanga as their prefered candidate. If the EFF does walk out before electing the new mayor, Msimanga can be reelected.
