A decision by the Democratic Alliance (DA) to dissolve the eThekwini Metro Council is on the agenda, just a month later ANC Mayor Mxolisi Kaunda has survived a motion to impeach him.

The special council meeting to hear the motion will take place on February 14.

The party’s caucus leader, Thabani Mthethwa, said the ANC had blocked the motion. filed in November.

“We have seen all sorts of theatrics from the ANC, EFF and other opposition parties who have attempted to dismiss and even ridicule its legality.

“Today’s announcement confirms the DA’s position that the motion is indeed competent and valid.”

“This follows relentless pressure from the DA and threats of legal action against council chairman Thabani Nyawose,” Mthethwa said.

Collapsed service delivery

The DA cited the collapse in the provision of services such as water, electricity and sanitation services as one of the reasons why it wanted eThekwini council dissolved.

Mthethwa urged other parties to support the motion.

“Now is not the time for political grandstanding, but for uniting with civic organizations and residents to save our city from the disastrous coalition of the ANC and EFF.

“Political parties will either have to support a city riddled with corruption and misadministration, or vote with the DA and millions of residents desperate to fix the city they love so much and call home,” he said. -he declares.

Failure of the motion of censure

The DA will have to rely on other opposition parties to ensure its motion passes, as it does not have the numbers to do so alone.

Earlier this month, the Inkatha Freedom Party (IF P) to remove Kaunda failed after 109 people voted against it. At least 89 councilors supported the removal.

The metro is run by the ANC with help from some minority parties.

Although the EFF sits on the Kaunda mayoral committee, they have criticized his alleged failures and also want him replaced.

According to Mthethwa, the end of Kaunda’s term is fast approaching.

“The slim margin by which Kaunda survived this motion proves that his days are numbered.

“This has given us confidence that we are on the right track in calling for his impeachment and the dissolution of the council.”
