Patricia De Lille

The DA’s executive committee in Cape Town gave a recommendation to the party’s top structure that Patricia de Lille should be relieved of her post as mayor of Cape Town.

According to Grant Twigg, chairman of the DA in the Mother City Metro Council, they no longer have confidence in her. According to the council, she cannot ensure stability, unity, and functionality.

However, the DA’s national chairman said he thought Twigg was premature to involve the media as the DA’s processes are still underway and should be allowed to be finalized.

Meanwhile, De Lille threatened to take legal action if the DA suspended her and that she would do everything to retain her post as mayor.

It seems, however, that De Lille has real problems as the Auditor-General apparently also found irregularities regarding management in her city council. However, he maintained his report in the light of pending investigations against her.
