Cape Town - Mayor Patricia de Lille and the DA have reached an agreement regarding the disciplinary process going forward.

The DA and De Lille, have reached an agreement about her ongoing issues with the Party.

“Both parties have agreed to a speedy disciplinary process including a hearing that will take place over 3 days in August,” national spokesperson Solly Malatsi said.

“In line with the agreement, the Motion of No Confidence against De Lille that was scheduled to take place on Thursday has been withdrawn.

In addition, the agreement makes space for the Mayor to be held accountable in a fair and reasonable manner for findings of independent Council led-investigations such as the upcoming Bowman’s report into her conduct.

Malatsi said upon De Lille’s insistence, the party will appoint an FLC panel, and the prosecution will be led by an independent senior prosecutor and will be open to the media. This agreement states that we will all strive to conclude the matter as soon as possible.

“We are working to ensure that the DA Caucus, the Mayoral Committee and functions of the City are focused on putting the people of Cape Town first,” he said.
