Leader of the Economic Freedom Fighter EFF is desperate for his party to take control of tshwane and is currently having serious talk with the main opposition party, the Democratic Alliance.
We are going to govern tshwane if talks go well with the DA, our people are in desperate need for EFF government to test us with some form of power and we are ready for the test.
This week the Democratic Alliance (DA)confirmed that discussions among opposition political parties about the future of the City’s mayor were underway.
The EFF and DA entered into a coalition after the African National Congress lost Tshwane, among other metros, following the 2016 local government elections.
The DA’s recently elected Gauteng caucus leader Solly Msimanga said the party’s federal leadership had been meeting with the EFF over the Tshwane mayorship.
Msimanga served as Tshwane mayor for two years after the 2016 municipal polls and his predecessor Stevens Mokgalapatook over in February.
Malema told reporters that while they would not call for a motion of no confidence in Mokgalapa, as part of power-sharing, they would be pushing to have their own representative elected to the post.
