Cape Town Mayor Patricia De Lille is challenging the City’s Council Speaker in the Western Cape High Court on Tuesday.
The Speaker has scheduled a motion of no confidence brought by the Democratic Alliance (DA) in De Lille for this Thursday.
De Lille wants the court to order the council to allow the use of a secret ballot when voting takes place.
Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) Leader Luthando Mbinda has come to defence of De Lille, a former PAC member.
Mbinda says the PAC believes that the street name changes that De Lille brought in Cape Town including renaming a major road after the PAC founder are among the reasons why she could not last in the DA.
“I don’t think they are happy about the fact that De Lille changed some of the Streets, more especially the last one, De Waal after Phillip Kgosana and as you know, the Freedom Front was not happy at all. I think most of these political parties are controlled by business people and if business people are not happy they will make sure that they get rid of you. It’s not easy most of the colonial names are used in Cape Town.”
