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.
Malema: we have taken the decision to remove the Mayor of PE. Some are asking why not yet and Mashaba, the mayor of DA in PE is a white man. We are touching them where it matters most! Trollip will not be a mayor after the 6th of April. RegisterToVoteEFF— RegisterToVoteEFF (@EFFSouthAfrica) March 4, 2018
With time running out before the possibility of the mayor&39;s removal, the DA says the firebrand EFF&39;s actions undermine the will of the people.
