Despite an interim court order barring IFP Mtubatuba Mayor, Mxolisi Mthethwa, from performing mayoral duties in the council, the IFP leadership Wednesday maintained he is still the mayor.

The party’s stance came after Wednesday’s ruling by the Pietermaritzburg high court.

The court ruled in favour of KwaZulu-Natal Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) MEC, Sipho Hlomuka. The MEC sought an interdict against Mthethwa, as Hlomuka claimed last week’s special council meeting where the mayor was elected did not follow proper procedures.
