JOHANNESBURG - The DA says it will deal with two of its councillors who didn’t toe the party line.

They attended a council session in which the City of Joburg's speaker was elected.

The party had ordered its members to stay away so that a quorum couldn’t be reached for the vote to take place.

The EFF also boycotted proceedings in protest of Nonceba Molwele being installed speaker.

The DA now wants to take action against its two members who refused to leave.

The party is also seeking legal advice on the legitimacy of the proceedings.

“They will be served with notices, we will ask them given the contravention why they should be considered as having left the party,” said DA Gauteng provincial chairperson Mike Moriarty.
