Regional spokesperson Bafuze Yabo, who will also join the 230 ANC parliamentarians, said the provincial executive had instructed the ANC in the greater Tshwane to process a list of those who must fill the shoes of the departing councillors.
“We have not yet finalised the replacements. The provincial office bearers have instructed the regional executive committee to process the matter promptly. Once that has happened I will issue a statement.”
When asked about his possible replacement, he said: “Your question is similar to asking President (Cyril) Ramaphosa) the question: ‘who is going to replace you as the president of the ANC once you assume the position of the president of the country’. The position is not affected by my government deployment.”
Party members to join the sixth democratic Parliament are Jacqueline Mofokeng, Simphiwe Mbatha, Oscar Mathafa, Dorothy Mabiletsa, Moloko Maggie Tlou, Lisa Mangcu, Makgathatso Pilane-Majake and Yabo.
