Pretoria - The North Gauteng High Court has dismissed an application to nullify the council meeting at which Tlokwe mayor Maphetle Maphetle was unseated.

Judge Neil Tuchten found on Monday that the meeting and the election of Democratic Alliance councillor Annette Combrink as mayor was lawful.

He also found that Maphetle's occupation of the mayoral office was unlawful.

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

The application by Maphetle and Tlokwe speaker Barei Segotso sought to have the meeting at which Combrink was voted in as mayor nullified.
