Durban - An eThekwini full council which was supposed to be held Thursday where the new mayor and deputy mayor were expected to be formally sworn in to office has been cancelled.
Text messages were sent to councillors on Wednesday morning notifying them to that fact.
The messages read: “Dear Cllr, Plz be advised that the Council meeting scheduled for Thursday, 29 August 2019 has now been POSTPONED to a date still to be advised. From:Secretariat”
Mdu Nkosi, IFP leader in the eThekwini council said the cancellation was “anti-progress” and “anti-service delivery”.
“This is a disgrace and total disrespect of the ratepayers of this municipality. Service delivery will be affected and we will see the rise in irregular expenditure. I’ve never seen a confused leadership like the one headed by the ANC,” Nkosi said.
