ANC members disrupted proceedings because they were apparently not happy with the people being appointed.

The swearing in of councillors and a mayor at Madibeng local municipality in the North West had to be held at a secret location after ANC members disrupted proceedings, SABC news reported on Wednesday.

“The inauguration of councillors went ahead as planned. It took place at the Brits Magistrate's Court offices,” Madibeng spokesman Patrick Morathi told the broadcaster.

“It happened there because there were some disruptions by some groupings of people. But however, I can indeed confirm that all councillors were sworn in,” he said.

ANC members disrupted proceedings because they were apparently not happy with the people being appointed, alleging that some leaders of municipalities had failed to provide basic services to its residents. They also claimed that some officials were linked to maladministration and corruption. -
