RUSTENBURG - A motion of no confidence against Rustenburg mayor Mpho Khunou did not take place at the council meeting on Tuesday after the EFF, which had brought the motion, and other opposition councillors walked out of the meeting.
"The motion of the EFF [Economic Freedom Fighter] falls off in terms of Rule 58 sub-section four because the mover and the seconder are not here," Speaker Shiela Mabale-Huma annouced.
The EFF walked out of the meeting stating that it was illegal as two more items were added to the agenda of the adjourned meeting on 30 July.
"The Economic Freedom Fighters concludes that we are going to take legal actions against this meeting, we are going to litigate each and every councillor whose going to take part and decision in this meeting.
"The Economic Freedom Fighters is not going to be part of this meeting," Abinaar Matlhoko said after opposition parties had a caucus to solidify their stance on the status of the meeting.
