MTN 8 Cup champions Cape Town City FC on a trophy parade with mayor Patricia de Lille outside the city hall yesterday. The parade made stops in areas such as Gugulethu and Athlone.
BONTEHEUWEL’S DA ward councillor Angus McKenzie has once again come under fire, this time for pledging his support for People Against Gangsterism and Drugs (Pagad).
He wants the group to enter Bonteheuwel to stop gang violence.
This despite strong objections by residents who slammed McKenzie saying he was pushing the DA’s election agenda. They have also rejected Pagad.
This story, leading today’s edition wraps what has been a week of surprises following the announcement that EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu’s brother Brian played a role in the almost R2 billion looting of the VBS Mutual Bank.
TV channel eNCA reports that Floyd was also accused of receiving R10 million of the R16m that VBS bank reportedly gave his brother.
Brian has threatened legal action against the SA Reserve Bank following a report it commissioned dubbed “The Great Bank Heist”.
We also report that mayor Patricia de Lille has penned an open letter to four fellow DA members demanding that they publicly apologise, for what she said were the distribution of defamatory statements.
She penned the letter to Henk Hugo, Shehana Kajee, DA KwaZuluNatal deputy provincial chairperson Mike Waters, DA Deputy Chief Whip and National Council of Provinces MP Bronwynn Engelbrecht for reposting, or otherwise distributing an image on social media which made claims about various “findings” against her by the auditorgeneral, which turned out to be fake.
De Lille also joined the MTN8 champions – Benni McCarthy’s side – Cape Town City FC in their trophy parade yesterday through the city centre, Langa, Athlone, Gugulethu, Hanover Park, Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha.
