A new leadership is ready for the Democratic Alliance D, as mayor-elect Stevens Mokgalapa was on Tuesday announced as the new mayor of the City of Tshwane to replace former mayor Solly Msimanga.
This was during the much-anticipated special council sitting that took place at Sammy Marks Council Chamber.
The DA nominated Mokgalapa as its mayoral candidate, but ANC councillor Lesego Makhubela criticised the party’s stance.
“Of all the black councillors that are here, did you have to go to Cape Town to get a councillor,” he said.
Speaker Katlego Mathebe answered by saying Mokgalapa was schooled at Mabopane High School and went to the University of Pretoria.
