Tlokwe municipality battle continues

2013-07-15 08:22

Residents of Marikana informal settlement near Potchefstroom say they are feeling neglected as the battle for control over Tlokwe municipality continues. Watch.WATCH

Johannesburg - The North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria will hear an application by the ANC on Tuesday to have the unseating of its Tlokwe mayor Maphetle Maphetle declared invalid.

The African National Congress wanted a council meeting that saw Democratic Alliance councillor Annette Combrink voted in as mayor nullified.

The ANC did not recognise Combrink as mayor and said Maphetle still held the post.

On 2 July, Combrink was voted in as the new mayor for the second time since November, unseating Maphetle.

The next day the ANC's North West provincial disciplinary committee expelled 14 of its councillors who voted to unseat Maphetle. They were also removed as Tlokwe councillors.

On 10 July, the ANC served court papers on 48 Tlokwe municipal councillors.

The documents were served on 26 ANC councillors, 19 DA, two Freedom Front Plus councillors, and one from the Congress of the People.
