Cape Town - The ANC hopes to pass a motion of no confidence in mayor Patricia de Lille at Wednesday’s council meeting, because of concerns about “deepening levels of inequality” in the DA-led city council.
Opposition leader Tony Ehrenreich on Tuesday outlined the party’s main concerns, with the controversial renaming of Table Bay Boulevard after former president FW de Klerk being among the biggest gripes.
The council is expected to approve the name change on Wednesday.
“De Klerk is a problem in principle,” said ANC chief whip Xolani Sotashe.
He said De Klerk was a “key implementer of apartheid” with no regard for black people.
