Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille hung up the phone on Eusebius Mckaiser when asked about allegations of bribery lodged against her by Johannesburg businessman, Anthony Faul.
She had earlier denied claims that she tried to solicit R5-million from Faul.
It has emerged that the Democratic Alliance has laid criminal charges against her.
Responding to the claims, De Lille insists that she will not engage in a trial by media.
I deny and reject the reported allegations with the contempt that it deserves. I have heard about the criminal charges laid and the police must still inform me formally and I will fully cooperate.— Patricia de Lille, Cape Town Mayor
