Still no decision on who will govern Cape Town

Both the ANC and Independent Democrats have refused to confirm rumours that they have signed a coalition deal to control the Cape Town metropole. A new mayor for the metro is expected to be announced before the first full council meeting, scheduled for Wednesday. According to Eyewitness News, ID mayoral candidate Simon Grindrod says media reports of an ANC-ID coalition are incorrect, but meetings between the two parties are still ongoing. ANC Western Cape leader James Ngkulu has also denied that an agreement has been reached. There have been reports that the two parties had reached an agreement with the African Muslim Party to gain a controlling stake in the 210-seat council.
