uMkhanyakude municipal manager Mxolisi Nkosi is gearing up to challenge his “illegal” suspension in the Pietermaritzburg high court.

Nkosi told The Witness on Monday he was in the process of preparing court papers to challenge the suspension. This comes after the ministerial representative, Bamba Ndwandwe, turned to the courts to stop Nkosi from going to work.

Nkosi is adamant the administrator has no powers to suspend him as the council has not been dissolved. Nkosi is said to be facing allegations of misconduct and maladministration.
