Pretoria - Newly-elected mayor of Tshwane Stevens Mokgalapa received a baptism of fire from both the ANC and EFF, warning his administration about the bumpy road ahead.
Regional party chairperson Kgosi Maepa warned him to brace himself for a rough ride because the party will always keep his work in check.
On the other hand, the EFF regional leader Moaferika Mabogwana remarked that Mokgalapa's occupation of the mayoral position might be short-lived.
"You are actually warming that seat for the EFF. You will only lead us until June," he said.
Maepa further took a potshot at the DA for continuing to lower its standard in terms of appointing poor leaders.
