DA to decide if Herman Mashaba will serve his notice period or get cut loose
The Democratic Alliance (DA) is yet to decide whether it will allow Joburg mayor Herman Mashaba to serve out his notice period following his resignation from the party.
Mashaba's resignation is expected to come into effect at the end of November.
However, the DA constitution entitles the party to terminate his membership immediately, reports EWN's Clement Manyathela.
The DA's Federal Council will sit on Wednesday morning to decide if they'll cut Mashaba loose.
According to Manyathela, some senior DA members were so aggrieved by Mashaba remarks about the party that they want his membership terminated with immediate effect.
