JOHANNESBURG – The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF)&39;s leader, Julius Malema addressed a rally held ahead of a motion of no confidence against Nelson Mandela Bay (NMB) mayor, Athol Trollip on Wednesday.
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

Earlier on Wednesday, the Democratic Alliance (DA) also addressed a rally on the issue.
The EFF vowed to punish Trollip for his party’s stance on land expropriation without compensation.
The DA does not support the approach to land redistribution.
The DA is calling on members of the public to stand with Trollip, saying his removal is unfounded.
The EFF and other parties, including the ANC and UDM, are likely to vote together to remove Trollip.
