Solly Msimanga: The decision to keep Mosola was a multi-party resolution

There are speculations that the City of Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga is dancing to the tune of the EFF after the party saved him from a motion of no confidence tabled by the ANC.

Speculations come after an announcement that city manager Moeketsi Mosola will stay at his post despite a report from Msimanga that his presence in office could be detrimental to the stability of the municipality.

Did the DA agree to this to please the EFF for saving Msimanga?

Misimanga says council took a decision that an investigation on Mosola should continue but while the investigation is underway they do not see any risk of interference. Therefore, he should remain in his position.

Msimanga says his recommendations were clear on the matter that Mosola should be suspended but it seems council had a different view.

If council is satisfied with the reasons provided that the man doesn't pose any threats towards the investigation then that's what's been put forward.
