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.
