Caution on fines
CAPE TOWN city councillors face disciplinary hearings if they do not obey summonses to appear in court for traffic fines, council Speaker Dirk Smit warned yesterday.
He said he had “untested” information there were currently 19 warrants of arrest issued for councillors.
In a letter sent to all councillors yesterday, he said not obeying summonses “will not be tolerated and it will leave the council with no alternative other than to discipline such councillors”. – Sapa
