Several ANC councillors came out with claws on Council Speaker Jonathan Lawack demanding that Greyling undergo a breathalyser test immediately at the the first council meeting of 2017.
"If there is a strong allegation of a drunk councillor, Mayor I ask you to lead us. There is a serious allegation that there is a drunk councillor in this house and we cannot sweep it under the carpet," said ANC party leader Bicks Ndoni.
Ndoni alleged that the councillor was visibly drunk and DA councillors were even embarrassed to see him in a drunken state at the council meeting.
"Some of them even said to us we must sympathise with him because he has domestic problems. We can't allow council to be a place where people come drunk. The mayor should have dealt with the matter but what he is doing is creating a precedent."
