The ACDP welcomes news of the Mayors suspension, understanding that the process is still unfolding, so we trust that will be completed speedily and smoothly.
We have highlighted her poor and questionable leadership of the City for many years. What the City desperately needs is honest, accountable and ethical leadership that works with, respects and is responsive to the needs of all Capetonians.
The ACDP calls on the DA to be fully transparent about the reasons for her suspension, and to lay charges where applicable without fear or favour.
We believe the DA’s absolute majority in Cape Town has been abused for too long, just like the ANC where it governs alone. The only remedy to this is a multi-party government of co-accountable partners, with all the associated social and economic benefits to the nation. Achieving this requires a decisive and informed change in voting behaviour.
