ANC has no confidence in DA’s Tlokwe mayor
The North West ANC has said it will call for a motion of no confidence against the DA’s Tlokwe municipality mayor Annette Combrink.
“Maphetle (Maphetle) will be reinstated the same way that he was removed, through a motion of no confidence on the present mayor,” spokesperson Kenny Morolong said today.
In November last year, warring ANC factions passed a motion of no confidence in ANC mayor Maphetle Maphetle. He was replaced by the DA’s Combrink.
At the time, the ANC said it hoped Combrink’s appointment could be declared invalid, as she had accepted her nomination via SMS.
The ANC’s provincial executive committee met on Monday and councillors “unreservedly” committed themselves to have Maphetle reinstated.
“The provincial executive committee is content with the strides made through this meeting which, in our view, will culminate in the restoration of confidence of the people of Tlokwe in the ANC.”
The motion would be tabled before the end of February.
