DA Gauteng leader John Moodey and EFF Gauteng chairperson Mandisa Mashego reflect on each party's prefered candidates.

The Democratic Alliance has placed Tshwane's Mayor Stevens Mokgalapa on special leave pending the conclusion of investigations into his conduct by the Federal Legal Commission.

Mokgalapa is embroiled in a sex scandal after an audio of him sharing sensitive information with his Roads and Infrastructure MMC Sheila Senkubuge was leaked on social media.

It’s alleged the two also engaged in sexual relations in the office however, Mokgalapa denied this, claiming he was being blackmailed and said he opened a criminal case.

With the scandals that the DA finds itself in, outgoing Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba stepping down could see the party lose power in Johannesburg.

The DA and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) have put forward their preferred candidate to run the country’s economic hub.

Musa Novela is the EFF preferred candidate while the DA has pushed forward Funzela Ngobeni's name.

Bongani Bingwa chats to DA Gauteng leader John Moodey and EFF Gauteng chairperson Mandisa Mashego to give more insight on the matter.

The Federal Legal Commission will be investigating whether the conduct by Mokgalapa has put the party and the city's names into disrepute.

The Federal Legal Commission will also be looking at the contents of the leaked audio and what was discussed in that leaked audio, Moody explains.

It is about whether this brings the party into disrepute and how does the conduct affect the cordiality within the caucus and within the party.

He says both denied to him having sexual relations.

Moody says the EFF has never been the DA's coalition partner and the party has mainly voted with it.

Mashego says the EFF has put forward Novela's name as he has led the party's caucus since 2016.

We introduced South Africans as to what happens in a hung government. When we took the decision not to be in coalition with anyone we were taking all of us on board on a training session on how this could possibly work.

Mandisa Mashego, Gauteng chairperson - EFF
