Estimated reading time: 4 minute(s)

Democratic Alliance (DA) accuse Gauteng Cogta MEC Lebogang Maile and Premier David Makhura of playing politics and trying to win back the capital city through a back door.

This after David Makhura and Cogta MEC Maile placed the City of Tshwane Municipality under administration yesterday.

Makhura said this is due to failure to appoint new mayor following resignation of Mokgalapa new municipal manager.

DA said in a statement that it is not true that the city is under administration because proper processes were not followed.

They say everything will continue as usual until proper processes are followed to place the city under administration.

They accuse Maile of spreading wrong message impression that the city is performing poor in terms of service delivery so to cause a commotion and panic among residents.

“It was their intention from the start to place the City under administration in order for the opposition to get its hands on the resources of the municipality through the backdoor”

The party said they are currently in conversation with their legal team on way forward to fighting back.
