The DA’s constituency head for George, Geordin Hill-Lewis, says Naik is no longer a member of the party.
He was given 48 hours to resign as Mayor but he refused to do. The party’s action comes after the DA caucus in George passed a motion of no confidence in Naik in January.
This after a forensic investigation found evidence of Naik’s involvement in fraud, corruption, maladministration and serious malpractice within municipality.
Hill-Lewis says the DA believes that it is in the best interest of the municipality and the people of George that Naik vacates the mayoral position.
