(We apologise for the poor sound quality of the audio clip.)

The South African Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) has raised concerns over the failing relationship between the Executive Mayor of the City of Tshwane and the City Manager.

The union says the said challenges have negatively impacted on administration and the City is gradually collapsing.

Speaking to Xolani Gwala, Samwu's regional secretary Mpho Tladinyane says the situation between the City manager and the mayor is getting worse.

That situation between the City manager and the Mayor is boiling down to affect the lower level staff members.
