ANC locked out of council meeting by DA

The African National Congress Caucus in the Western Cape today said they were locked out of the council meeting by the Democratic Alliance Caucus because of difference of opinion.

ANC’s Charlotte Haynes said the speaker wanted to put one of our councilors out as he wanted him to apologize for something which we disagreed with, that he did not say anything wrong.

“The speaker agreed on something with us and the next thing you know the speaker “somersaulted” and insisted that the councilor must remain out. The DA came back and they have changed the venue of the meeting to the first floor” Haynes added.

Haynes said they have taken a decision as the ANC that they are going to attend this council, as we are part of this council and we are here to represent our party.

Meanwhile Mayor Patricia de Lille released a statement saying the ANC caucus has for the second time in recent months bought their ungovernability campaign into the Council Chamber. 

De Lille in the statement said by moving the council meeting to an alternative venue this sends a strong message that the ANC’s ungovernability campaign will not be tolerated.
