JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance (DA) has launched a petition against the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF)’s bid to remove Nelson Mandela Bay Metro (NMBM) mayor Athol Trollip.

The party called on the public to reject next month’s vote of no confidence in the mayor.

The EFF vowed to punish Trollip for his party’s stance on land expropriation without compensation.
