Chaos erupts during Ekurhuleni Council meeting, EFF and ANC stand off

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Chaos has erupted at the Ekurhuleni Council Chambers where political parties were supposed to debate and pass a motion of no confidence in the Executive Mayor Sivuyile Ngodwana.

A stand-off between the ANC and the EFF resulted in a war of words and the pelting of water bottles among the attendees.

This after the EFF reportedly requested a 30-minute caucus break during recommendations to amend the conditions of the motion.

The commotion has led to the abrupt adjournment of the meeting.
