Cape Town Deputy Mayor, Ian Neilson is expected to take over as acting Mayor following the ousting of Patricia de Lille.
De Lille says the Democratic Alliance (DA) has continued to act unfairly towards her. This after the party’s Federal Executive ended her membership of the DA on Tuesday.
De Lille says she’ll approach the High Court on Friday to challenge their decision.
“I’ve always maintained that my only aim in this matter was to clear my name and that I was not married to any position. My integrity and my name are things that I’ve worked very hard for, for more than 40 years in politics. These are things that I value more than anything else.”
