DA UMD Coalition Collapses As Holomisa Fights Back

Anthol Trollip

“As a result of that on Monday half past four we’ll be listening to the DA’s reason on why they removed Bobani.”

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa is fuming after the Executive Mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay municipality, Athol Trollip announced his decision to remove the United Democratic Movement’s (UDM) Mongameli Bobani from the mayoral committee.

Holomisa says he is angered by the decision taken by Trollip as it undermines their coalition agreement they entered into. According to Holomisa the UDM and the DA agreed that when there is a problem in any of the municipalities where the coalition partners are governing, all leaders should be briefed on said matters.

Trollip did not inform Holomisa about his deicision to remove Bobani, a move which has fuelled tension between the two.

The UDM has threatened to use it vote to remove Trollip from his position as the mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay municipality.
