Residents of the Schweizer Reneke-based Mamusa Local Municipality in the North West say they continue to suffer service delivery issues due to internal party squabbles in the council.
Five African National Congress (ANC) councillors face disciplinary hearings for allegedly bringing the party into disrepute.
The councillors allegedly voted with the opposition to elect an Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) councillor as the Speaker of the council following the 2021 local government elections.
Tensions ran high during a sitting of the council in May 2022.
