Democratic Alliance (DA) head of governance James Selfe is headed to Tshwane to speak to the city's executive mayor Stevens Mokgalapa.
The meeting is to address the agreement reached with the South Africa Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) and the Independent Municipal Allied Trade Union (Imatu) who demanded an 18% pay hike.
Selfe says the party is not happy with the R318m bonus agreement reached between workers and the City.
Bongani Bingwa chats to the DA head of governance.
I am going to Tshwane to hear all the sides of the story because I think at the very least, this might be irregular and it might be illegal and we are certainly very unhappy about the situation in Tshwane.— James Selfe, Head of governance - DA
This agreement is unacceptable, It is extortion and there is no other way to describe it.— James Selfe, Head of governance - DA
