The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Maluti-a-Phofung in the Free State says it does not support the coalition government in the municipality but it will vote with MAP16 civic movement.
Yesterday MAP16, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Dikwankwetla, African Transformation Movement (ATM), African Independent Congress (AIC) and SARKO announced that they will lead the embattled municipality in a coalition government supported by the DA and FF Plus, pushing the African National Congress (ANC) to the opposition benches.
MAP-16’s Gilbert Mokotso is earmarked for mayoral position. DA member Alison Oates says they remain worried about corruption in the municipality and want to deal with it in the council.
“So let me assure you all that the DA has agreed to support MAP 16 in the election of their troika, but we will be vigorous in holding them to account and we will feel nothing for voting against them if we believe they are not indulging in good governance.”
