CAPE TOWN – The DA says it will table a second motion of no confidence against Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality mayor Mongameli Bobani.

Bobani took over from the DA’s Athol Trollip as mayor months ago.

Trollip was unseated through a no-confidence motion.

The opposition party has called on Cooperative Governance Minister Zweli Mkhize and his Eastern Cape counterpart to intervene in the troubled municipality.

The DA’s Nqaba Bhanga says: “We must also ask the minister, Dr Zweli Mkhize, to intervene in this district because they just appointed a junior director to be a municipal manager who doesn’t have the qualifications. This is not acceptable and cannot be done. It’s illegal.”
