Scuffles break out in NMB chamber


EFF and ANC council members in Nelson Mandela Bay have staged a walk out from the special seating.

JOHANNESBURG - A scuffle broke out between an EFF and a DA councillor during the special sitting in the council chamber in Port Elizabeth on Thursday.

Councillors are to vote on an EFF motion of no confidence in DA mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay Athol Trollip.

Things quickly became heated.



The presence of DA leader Mmusi Maimane in the council chambers raised tensions.


Opposition parties called on Maimane to leave, but the speaker declined their request.

All but two of the EFF councillors walked out, followed shortly afterwards by the ANC.
