'Suspend Mosola on the basis of corruption, not the DA's personal reasons'

The African National Congress (ANC) says it wants embattled city manager Moeketsi Mosola suspended based on allegations of corruption and not for what it believes are the Democratic Alliance and Tshwane mayor Solly Msimanga’s 'personal' reasons.

Msimanga said Mosola had failed in his duties and had committed acts of misconduct.

The ANC, EFF and PAC made up the numbers that halted Msimanga’s attempt to issue a notice of suspension to Mosola in a council meeting on Thursday and voted for deferment of the matter to January 2019.

Mosola is accused of disregarding procedures and unlawfully granting engineering firm GladAfrica a multi-billion-rand contract.

Speaking to Karima Brown, ANC Tshwane regional chairperson Dr Kgosi Maepa insists Mosola must be suspended for his alleged role in the GladAfrica tender.

We said the city manager must be suspended on the issue of corruption, why do you have to divert and suspend him because he insulted Solly in a letter? We are not interested in how Solly feels about it.

Dr Kgosi Maepa, ANC Tshwane regional chairperson

The report of the auditor-general is out. We want the executive mayor to use that report, put him on suspension based on the issues of corruption that we mentioned.

Dr Kgosi Maepa, ANC Tshwane regional chairperson

Today they bringing a matter of their own fight in court, they want us to suspend. Why do you ignore when we bring a matter of corruption? The can't just come up with misconduct when in fact there is the big elephant in the room with the issue of corruption.

Dr Kgosi Maepa, ANC Tshwane regional chairperson

We want to say that Mosola must be suspended for the issues that we raised.
