Gauteng DA refutes ANC claims that it has fired Tshwane mayor Stevens Mokgalapa

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Gauteng has refuted tweets by the African National Congress (ANC) in Tshwane that it has fired Mayor Stevens Mokgalapa.

In December, the council removed council Speaker Katlego Mathebe and Mayor Stevens Mokgalapa through motions of no confidence. However, the DA challenged all resolutions taken in that sitting, saying it was illegal.

Ray White speaks to Eyewitness News reporter Edwin Ntshidi on the latest update from the capital.

I have just been on the line with DA Gauteng leader John Moodey who says that tweet by Kgoši Maepa is fake news.

He says processes are well underway and they have established a committee that is dealing with Mokgalapa's issue. So, in short, he is saying that is completely wrong.

Ntshidi says speaker Katlego Mathebe says she might be opening a criminal case for the fraudulent act allegedly committed by the opposition parties.

Late yesterday in the afternoon we got a statement from the speaker's office saying of the 114 signatures from ANC and the EFF submitted to her office, seven of them appeared to the fake and she has ordered a forensic probe in that matter.
