There was a directive given for the DA’s preferred chairperson Clive Justus and then the councillors voted for another councillor.
The Democratic Alliance hypocrisy has been exposed after the party called for ANC MPs to vote against their party’s caucus directive on the vote of no confidence against President Zuma.
Just five months ago the DA fired five councillors in the City of Cape Town for voting against their party’s caucus directive. All five councillors were subjected to internal disciplinary process. They were accused of voting against the party’s preferred candidate for Ward 2 subcouncil chairperson in Kraaifontein.
The councillors apparently ignored a party directive to vote for Clive Justus and instead voted for Grant Twigg.
“There was a directive given for the DA’s preferred chairperson Clive Justus and then the councillors voted for another councillor, which is essentially against the directive given to them.” said DA’s Anneke Scheepers.
The DA is calling for ANC MPs to vote against the position of the ANC when the vote of no confidence is debate in parliament.
