Help us save Nelson Mandela Bay
We cannot back down in the fight to end corruption, deliver better services and create jobs.
A legal opinion obtained by the Nelson Mandela Bay city manager has confirmed that the election of the new speaker and the removal of Mayor Athol Trollip is “unlawful, invalid, and capable of being set aside.”
The legal opinion confirms our view.
Specifically, it states that “having regard to the factual circumstances that prevailed, it can never be said that the Municipal Manager was not available.”
The opinion goes on to state that the municipal manager was “physically available and accordingly, the appointment of such other person to chair the election of a Speaker was unlawful and invalid with the concomitant result that the appointment of a Speaker and the subsequent appointment of a new Mayor are similarly unlawful, invalid and capable of being reviewed and set aside”.
The ANC, EFF and UDM have formed an unholy alliance to fill their own party coffers with public funds and bring looting back to Nelson Mandela Bay ahead of the 2019 elections.
Nelson Mandela Bay is currently in the best financial position it has been in for more than a decade. The coalition of corruption will do everything in their power to get their hands on the public purse.
