Cape Town - Cape Town mayor Patricia De Lille, responding to claims that her husband was arrested yesterday for reckless and negligent driving, said he had, in fact, suffered a stroke while driving in Pinelands.
She confirmed the arrest, but added that the same officials had called an ambulance after the arrest, when it became clear that her husband, Edwin de Lille, was disorientated and confused.
She had been
forced to abandon a meeting in Stellenbosch when she learnt of the incident.
He was arrested by City of Cape Town traffic officers, but no city spokesmen were yesterday available or prepared to comment, in spite of repeated attempts by Weekend Argus.
