If Mayor Patricia de Lille was expecting stormy weather at yesterday morning’s City Council meeting, it never happened. Or maybe it was the lull before the storm.
She used the meteorological metaphor throughout her mayoral address. The ANC were out, apparently, to “create a tempest of intrigue”. Their rainmakers were trying to create “a storm in a teacup”. She hoped they found themselves redeployed by more senior comrades “to make storms elsewhere”. And finally, “the wisdom for us all is knowing who the rainmakers are”.
