Parties Battle For Control Of Nelson Mandela Bay As Eff Withdraws From Motion Of No Confidence Against Mayor

  |   Sanews

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) have withdrawn from the motion of no confidence in Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Mongameli Bobani.

The party decided that it should withdraw with immediate effect after it could not be provided with an assurance that Bobani's replacement would not come from the Democratic Alliance (DA).

Provincial leader Yazini Tetyana said the EFF could not be associated with parties such as the Patriotic Alliance (PA) "as they cannot be trusted in these causes of action".

"The national leadership will deal with the issues after engagement with other parties. Therefore, the EFF will not participate in the motion and should withdraw from the motion and await the national directives," he said.

The EFF, which previously partnered with the ANC and other opposition parties to oust former mayor Athol Trollip, resolved earlier this year to cut all its informal partnerships with the DA and ANC.
