Embattled Cape Town Mayor Patricia De Lille has refused to definitively confirm whether or not she will resign at the end of the month.
Back in August, it appeared de Lille had come to a political agreement with the DA when she announced her intention to resign at the end of October.
However, that deal now appears to be up in the air following the release to two seemingly contradictory reports by law firm Bowman Gilfillan.
Leading up to the 31st I'm dealing with these challenges, and that will determine whether I resign or not.— Patricia de Lille, Cape Town Mayor
De Lille also says she has evidence that law firm Bowman Gilfillan has colluded with politicians in the DA.
The revelations come as the DA-run Cape Town City Council announced on Thursday it would seek to have de Lille, and other senior officials, criminally investigated.
The latest controversy I'm challenging is that the same company, Bowman, conducting the same investigation, on the same charge, came to two different conclusions.— Patricia de Lille, Cape Town Mayor
One found me guilty, the other not.— Patricia de Lille, Cape Town Mayor
I have evidence to suggest Bowmans were colluding with politicians.— Patricia de Lille, Cape Town Mayor
