Rustenburg - Drama erupted at special council meeting in Rustenburg on Monday, where councillors exchanged heated words, wagged fingers at each other and nearly punched each other.
The meeting was called to appoint the acting director of the Rustenburg Rapid Transport (RRT) amongst others.
Forum 4 Service Delivery whip Napoleon Webster accused the mayor Mpho Khunou of "having a personal interest" in the RRT project.
"This boy lacks experience, he has experience as a teller and now we want to put the responsibility of our road networks on him. The mayor had a personal interest in this appointment. There is a public outcry that the mayor has personal interest in the RRT projects."
A number of African National Congress (ANC) councillors objected and simultaneously stated order.
