Tania Campbell back as Ekurhuleni mayor

Tania Campbell returns to the mayoral seat after she was recently ousted following a motion of no confidence by the ANC.

After what must have been extensive negotiations with opposition parties, the DA’s Tania Campbell was again voted as executive mayor of the City of Ekurhuleni.

This follows the vote of no confidence, tabled by the ANC recently, which was passed with 100 votes for the motion and 93 against.

The election of a mayor was last week postponed to today.

The ANC nominated chief whip Jongizizwe Dlabathi with the DA again putting its support behind Campbell.

Campbell took the election with 124 votes to 99. In total, 224 votes were cast with one vote spoilt.

The EFF initially nominated its caucus leader Nkululeko Dunga, who then withdrew from the mayoral race.

Reports suggest he announced his withdrawal after taking a telephone call inside council chambers.
