Vinay Choonie and Basil Douglas are facing expulsion and removal from their positions after defying the DA.

Democratic Alliance (DA) Gauteng provincial chairperson Mike Moriarty says the two councillors accused of having voted in favour of African National Congress (ANC) candidate Geoff Makhubo as mayor of Johannesburg in a secret ballot, were part of an illegal council meeting to elect a new speaker.

Vinay Choonie and Basil Douglas are facing expulsion and removal from their positions after defying the DA.

Choonie has admitted to voting for Makhubo. On Friday, Independent Newspapers ran parts of an interview with the councillor who apparently dared the party to fire him after his decision to vote with the ANC.

Moriarty says Choonie arrived at the mentioned council meeting in defiance of the DA caucus whip.

He arrived at the meeting yesterday in defiance of the DA's caucus whip and as a result has been served with papers. He has decided to go all guns blazing and admit that he did vote in a secret ballot for Geoff Makhubo.

No matter what your beef is with the party, no matter how upset you are, there are channels and there are means in which you can express yourself. You do not go ahead then and vote for someone as tainted in corruption...
