Tshwane ANC takes legal action against speaker
The African National Congress (ANC) in Tshwane has filed an urgent court application in the Gauteng HIgh Court in Pretoria to have council convene an urgent disciplinary hearing against council Speaker Katlego Mathebe.
This for allegedly blocking proposed motions to unseat her.
Clement Manyathela spoke to ANC Tshwane Chairperson, Dr Kgosi Maepa to find out more.
The MEC has given directive where he is allowed to give instructions to council. He has instructed that he has rescinded his suspension and therefore the matter must be dealt with, with disciplinary proceedings of council. We have said that the MEC letter must be placed before council.Dr Kgosi Maepa, ANC Tshwane chairperson
Council must decide whether she must be disciplined or not but she does not want to allow that to proceed. The matter affects her directly but she wants to preside over the same matter, that is why we went to court.Dr Kgosi Maepa, ANC Tshwane chairperson
