was unceremoniously ousted as mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay (NMB) after one DA member abstained from the vote which ousted speaker Jonathan Lawack. With the speaker out of the way, the road was open for the opposition to elect a new speaker who oversaw the motion of no-confidence in Trollip. With Trollip and his caucus absent, his nemesis Mongameli Bobani (UDM) was voted in as mayor. The DA says it was a sham and will take it on review, but as it stands
NMB has a new mayor, and it’s not Trollip.
