The council meeting where Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Mongameli Bobani was due to face a motion of no confidence on Thursday, has been cancelled.
The United Democratic Front's (UDM) Bobani is accused of removing key officials from office and of meddling in tender processes.
Bongani Bingwa chats to Patriotic Alliance councillor Marlon Daniels about the latest turn of events.
Daniels notes that of the nine political parties represented on the Nelson Mandela Bay council, initially eight wanted Bobani out.
However, it's emerged that the UDM has managed to get the support of one other party, he says.
I can tell you that seven out of nine parties want him out.— Marlon Daniels, Councilor - Patriotic Alliance
Daniels says Bobani has been irregularly promising businesses tenders and that in the first place, when Athol Trollip was ousted as mayor, the agreement had been that a minority party should lead.
Bobani was supposed to be the deputy mayor as per agreement by the black caucus. The fact that he was put in as mayor, came as a surprise to everybody. If it was up to the Patriotic Alliance, Bobani would be out.— Marlon Daniels, Councilor - Patriotic Alliance
