WATCH LIVE: Motion of no confidence in NMB mayor Athol Trollip meeting underway
The Nelson Mandela Bay special council sitting started at 8am on Thursday and members are discussing a series of motions of no confidence in the leadership, including DA mayor Athol Trollip.
The motion was tabled by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF). The DA has responded to this motion by saying the EFF’s reasons for wanting Trollip out are fundamentally racist.
Last year, two motions of no confidence were brought against Trollip but the first attempt to remove him failed to materialise and the second attempt failed.
