Cape Town - Cape Town's city council has removed DA councillor Junade Hoosain from his position, the party said on Wednesday.
Hoosain was found guilty of racism by the city's disciplinary committee after he reportedly used a racial slur against a black security guard, said Democratic Alliance spokeswoman Lisa Albrecht.
She said the party would now conduct its own disciplinary process.
The city council was also taking disciplinary action against another councillor, Michael Toko.
Toko allegedly illegally drew an old age pension grant while earning a salary as a fulltime councillor.
Albrecht said she was not sure when the disciplinary action against Toko would be completed.
