Democratic Alliance (DA) Gauteng Leader Solly Msimanga on Wednesday wrote an open letter to Gauteng Premier David Makhura. Msimanga said a week has passed since the Constitutional Court ruled that Gauteng Cooperative Governance  MEC Lebogang Maile breached the law and acted unlawfully.

The Constitutional Court ruled in DA’s favour and affirmed that the ANC power grab in Tshwane was unlawful

Msimanga said Makhura has done nothing to hold MEC Maile accountable for his unacceptable conduct. “You are personally protecting and defending a law-breaker. Where is the accountability, and where is the responsibility for MEC Maile breaking the law?”

Msimanga added that on Tuesday, 12, October 2021,Makhura and MEC Maile visited Emfuleni Local Municipality which has been under administration since 2018, “there is clear maladministration, Eskom attached its municipal bank account and the Sheriff attached its municipal vehicles. Yet no further intervention has been forthcoming from your administration.”

Gauteng DA leader challenged Premier Makhura to fire MEC Maile within 7 days. “You have 7 days to do so, else you make a mockery of the highest court in South Africa.”
