Kagisano Molopo mayor Bitsa Lenkopane was recalled to restore public confidence in the ANC and to restore order, efficient and effective service delivery. Lenkopane was condemned for bringing instability within her municipality.
Meanwhile DR Ruth Segomotsi Mompati mayor Boitumelo Mahlangu, Madibeng mayor Jostine Mothibi, Moretele mayor Andries Monaheng and Mahikeng mayor Betty Diakanyo will be axed due to their involvement in the VBS mutual bank investments. Maquassi Hills mayor Noni Kgabi and Mamusa mayor Aaron Motswana will be fired for lack of good and clean governance.
“We do so precisely because the roles and responsibility of mayors of the ANC is to play political oversight of the decisions that are taken by councils and to guide those councils.
Therefore, it means that our mayors, who are deployees of the ANC, were basically absent mayors and today those municipalities are struggling financially,” Mataboge said.
He said the provincial task team has tasked premier Job Mokgoro to also reshuffle his cabinet within 48 hours.
