Newly instated Mayor Athol Trollip gives first speech

18 August, 01:34 PM

The DA's Athol Trollip delivered his first speech as Mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality on Thursday, 18 August 2016.

He was flanked by UDM regional chairperson Mongameli Bobani, UDM councillor Thoko Tshangela and Siyasanga Sijadu, acting regional secretary of Cope.

The group reflected the multi-party coalition (or, if you prefer, agreement) between the DA and others. 

The council's first meeting was nearly thwarted by disruptions from members of the ANC, which suffered losses in the area during the local government elections.

In his first speech following the announcement of his promotion, Trollip spoke about the history of reconciliation in Nelson Mandela Bay.
