A contractual dispute between the City of Cape Town and the N2 Express Joint Venture operating company that services the Mitchells Plain-to-CBD route has seen the service come to a grinding halt, with no end in sight.
Purchase said negotiations were ongoing, but the ANC’s Xolani Sotashe was not buying her stance.
Sotashe, the ANC leader in the city council, said Purchase was “reflecting the arrogance and the ignorance of her political party”.
“They are not interested in commuters’ needs. How come they are taking so long to negotiate for something that they knew long ago. She has no clue about her role,” Sotashe said.
