Msimanga: ANC, EFF helping Mosola evade suspension in order to vote me out

Solly Msimanga says the coalition of EFF and ANC supporting Mosola is so they can call for a motion of no confidence against him.

As political parties continue to squabble in the City of Tshwane, what happens to service delivery?

This is on the back of attempts by Executive Mayor Solly Msimanga to have his city manager Moeketsi Mosola suspended at Thursday's council meeting.

This attempt fell onto deaf ears as the African National Congress (ANC) moved an amendment to defer the matter to January's sitting.

Msimanga has made serious allegations against Mosola ranging from contracts, mismanagement of the city's communications system and allegations of threatening senior staff.

READ:'History will be able to judge'

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa Msimanga, he says the reasons he wants Mosola out is due to a number of actions that have occurred in recent times.

He says service delivery in the city has taken a huge knock, tenders have not been awarded and contracts have not been renewed.

We are in a situation where the morale of the staff is very low as the staff is working under pressure. There are a whole lot of vacancies that should have been filled which were approved by the council and they have not been filled.

Solly Msimanga, Tshwane Mayor

He adds that asking for a suspension of Masola is not a cheap political victory, but rather because of his conduct and lack of delivery.

The investigations against him were initiated by a council and not by Solly Msimanga. All the councillors voted that this investigation must take place.

Solly Msimanga, Tshwane Mayor

Now for him to call a council-initiated investigation bogus, is on its own an act of misconduct.

He says the ANC is bargaining on having a motion of no confidence against him in January against him and they will need the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) to do that.

For them to get the EFF's help is to then say we will support you to keep Mosola in but then you then must support us to get Solly out.
