ANC councillor faces expulsion in CT

2012-09-28 13:04

Cape Town - The City of Cape Town will ask for ANC councillor Andile Lili to be expelled from the city council after a disciplinary committee found him guilty of misconduct, it was reported on Friday.

The Cape Times reported that Lili was found guilty of making derogatory remarks to Khayelitsha resident Bongiwe Gugushe during a committee meeting last year, saying she "will have to give birth in a drain or in the bush".

The city's multi-disciplinary committee also found him guilty "without any legal basis" of demanding Gugushe move out of her home, or demolish it.

He was found to have led a group last July to illegally demolish a home of another Khayelitsha resident, entering the home and removing household items.

Additionally, he was found guilty of calling a resident a thief and witchdoctor at a community meeting last year.

According to the report, the committee recommended that the council ask local government MEC Anton Bredell to expel Lili for contravening the code of conduct for councillors.

Lili said he was gearing up for a fight and was "confident that this one is winnable".

He would ask the Speaker, Dirk Smit, to have his case reviewed, saying the decision was political.

    Poor upbringing, no manners or respect for others. A councillor should be a decent and cultured person.

      Anc use a roulette wheel for selecting them

    Fire the clown. To all the CancER voters take the leap and "fire" every anc councillor in the country, they have no prospect of governing South Africa successfully. As a wise politician said "We cannot miss the window of opportunity between now and 2014 to bring together all South Africans who want to build a stable and shared future".

    Goes to show just how empty the ANC's barrel is of any Politicians of the slightest worth to the nation. Most of those so carefully selected, turn out to be nothing but a huge embarrassment and humiliation to the arrogant ruling party.

  • Tony Becker - 2012-09-28 14:03

    They still cant take responsibility...."the decision was political". what an idiot!!

  • roy.wadhams.1 - 2012-09-28 14:04

    Now he will call the DA a racist party and his party, the ANC,will welcome him back with open arms. Good riddance to all of his kind who make people think that they are above party principals.

    Arrogant, illiterate councilor. Once they have power, they abuse it and think they are above the law. There many like him.
