The Democratic Alliance (DA) Federal Executive Council is expected to announce the political future of embattled Cape Town Mayor, Patricia de Lille on Tuesday morning.
FedEx Chair James Selfe, his deputy Natasha Mazzone and others will brief the media in Cape Town on the next steps in their relationship with De Lille.
A meeting to decide De Lille’s fate was suspended last weekend, after she served the DA with papers challenging her possible recall.
She has provided reasons why she should remain in her position.
Over 70% of the DA’s caucus in the City of Cape Town council recently passed a motion of no confidence in De Lille.
She is also taking action over a social media post by some DA MPs suggesting that an audit opinion blames her for irregularities in the City of Cape Town.
De Lille says she will lay criminal charges as well as complain to Parliament and to the DA.
Meanwhile, the DA says the “De Lille exposed” post which has been shared on social media is not official content, and has never been circulated on official party platforms. The party says the letter has never been used as the basis for any disciplinary process involving De Lille. It says content that has been shared on DA platforms is accurate and authentic.
