Durban - The eThekwini Executive council meeting (Exco) has collapsed after councilors from the three opposition parties walked out of the Durban City Hall meeting on Tuesday.
IFP spokesperson, Mdu Nkosi, DA caucus leader Nicole Graham and the party’s chief whip Thabani Mthethwa walked out of the meeting.
Deputy Mayor Fawzia Peer was interrupted by Nkosi as she was beginning the council meeting.
He wanted the city’s legal representative who was at the meeting to clarify whether Peer and six other ANC members serving on the executive committee could be part of the meeting since the ANC leadership had announced they were to be redeployed.
“We were told you are no more members of Exco through the media by the ANC,” he said.
