Johannesburg - The disciplinary hearing of Cederberg's mayor started in Cape Town on Monday, the ANC in the Western Cape said.

Provincial spokesperson Philip Dexter said the ANC could not comment on the matter until proceedings were over.

According to reports, Mayor Jonas White allegedly sent pornographic images to his deputy Lorna Scheepers.

He apparently also invited her on a trip for two to Durban, at the municipality's expense.

Scheepers made the allegations in an affidavit to the Western Cape ANC's executive committee.

White reportedly faces charges of harassment, financial mismanagement and political interference in the administration.


Earlier this month, the Hawks said it had seized computers and cellphones owned by the Cederberg municipality as part of its investigations into corruption in the municipality.

The DA said the investigation by the Hawks came after the party in Cederberg wrote to Public Protector Thuli Madonsela alerting her to "various issues of corruption and mismanagement".

At the time Dexter said the ANC had started disciplinary procedures.
