This was after the DA in the metro, led by mayor Athol Trollip, pushed for the sacking of Bobani three weeks ago.The DA is in a coalition with the UDM, EFF, COPE, ACDP and other smaller parties, and Bobani had been the most senior councillor to Trollip since the August 3 elections.

In a letter Holomisa wrote to Maimane yesterday, he demanded that the DA federal leader and his comrades apologise, saying they had “actively misled the public on this matter”.

  1. Major, wake up and smell the coffee. Bobani is a joke. He doesn’t worth this. He is a liability. He is going to cost you big time. You have only two councilors in NMBM. He is the cause for such a poor performance. Get rid of this guy and get someone honorable.

Have your say
