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.

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.
