Following the removal of Vasco da Gama as council speaker, the African National Congress (ANC) in Johannesburg announced its intention to run for Joburg Mayor Mpho Phalatse.
Da Gama was ejected from the speaker’s office early Thursday morning after the Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC) filed a motion of no confidence against him.
The ANC and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) supported the move, but it only succeeded after some councillors from the multi-party coalition voted in favor of Da Gama’s removal.
Dada Morero of the ANC claimed that removing Da Gama from the Joburg Council would improve service delivery in the city.
“The speaker has not been impartial as he is required. He has been the speaker of the DA and not the speaker of council,” Morero said.
