DA Gauteng leader John Moodey says the ANC is hellbent on taking control of the city, hence the motions of no confidence.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Tshwane has been under the spotlight since the sex scandal of its mayor Stevens Mokgalapa made headlines.

The Tshwane council will sit on Thursday to yet again debate a motion of no confidence against Mokgalapa amidst threats by Gauteng Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs MEC Lebogang Maile to place the city under administration.

Africa Melane on 702Breakfast chats to DA Gauteng leader John Moodey to give more insight on the matter.

There will be motions of no confidence against the chair of chairs and most probably they will attempt a motion of no confidence against the speaker, Katlego Mathebe, and mayor Stevens Mokgalapa as well because the African National Congress (ANC) is hellbent on taking over governance in Tshwane. The threat to place Tshwane under admistration is an attempt by the ANC to use its political muscle in a coup d'état.

John Moodey, Leader - Gauteng DA

The ANC is trying to destabilise Tshwane and create an impression that the wheels have come off the track, he says.
