Outgoing Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille says she wants to challenge the report findings made against her in court.

Outgoing Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille says she wants to go to court to set aside a report she says has tarnished her name BEFORE she steps down.

De Lille held a press briefing on Monday, just two days before she's scheduled to leave office.

The mayor did not indicate whether she will indeed step down from her position on Wednesday, 31 October.

Instead, she told reporters that her priority is to clear her name.

This comes after the Cape Town City Council adopted a report last week that alleges that De Lille could have been involved in covering up corruption.
