Cape Town - It's the end of the road for Cape Town mayor Patricia De Lille she is expected to announce her resignation on Sunday. 

Independent Media has reliably learned that De Lille is expected to resign on Sunday as part of a deal stuck with the DA in July. 

Sources have indicated that De Lille will stay on for the next three month as mayor until October 31. She is set to leave her post and still stay as a member of the party.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) leader, Mmusi Maimane, and De Lille are expected to make the all important announcement on Sunday.

It has been an ongoing public spat between De Lille and the party as the DA prepares to welcome new leadership. 

De Lille was suspended last year from all party related activities after allegations of maladministration surfaced. 

De Lille has refuted allegations that she is running away from accountability and has insisted in a fair disciplinary process to face charges against her. Her membership was also rescinded from the party earlier this year.  

The DA adopted a new clause labeled the “De Lille Clause” on its April 7 federal congress in Tshwane.
