WATCH: FIGHT IN NELSON MANDELA BAY COUNCIL!

A fight broke out in the Nelson Mandela Bay council on
Tuesday after Speaker Buyelwa Mafaya ruled there was an illegal councillor in
the chamber.’New’ DA councillor Lutho Sokudela was sworn in last month
after the now infamous council meeting that saw former mayor Athol Trollip
ousted, and Mbulelo Manyati “removed” by the DA.However, the Eastern Cape High Court ruled last week that
Manyati was still a councillor until he chose to resign, or disciplinary
measures against him were concluded by the DA.City manager Johan Mettler read out the court judgment to
clarify the matter.Sokudela was therefore “illegally” in council,
Mafaya told the chamber. The DA caucus objected, with chief whip Werner Senekal
saying Manyati was no longer a member of the party, by their rules.News24 understands that the scuffle ensued after metro
police attempted to remove Sokudela.SOURCE: NEWS24
