ANC leader in the Western Cape legislature Cameron Dugmore has called for the removal of Western Cape deputy speaker Beverley Schäfer, after she allegedly supported a company that denied access to labour inspectors.

Schäfer stands accused of encouraging the conduct of Snowflake, a bakery, and that of farms when inspectors went to assess their compliance with the Covid-19 coronavirus regulations.

The ANC is alleging that, consequent to this, more companies have refused to comply with inspectors assigned with overseeing compliance in the province.
