Before he become sworn in, EFF ward councillor, Poncho Mocwane demanded that they planned at the allegations. "These allegations have to now no longer be taken lightly. Let us address it earlier than he's sworn in and provide him an possibility to guard himself,” stated Mocwana.

Our ANC should act now!" Niehaus stated on Twitter.
Seemingly the nearby ANC on the Papanya Branch in writing complained approximately Mthetho's crook history. However, the warnings were, allegedly left out due to his utspoken assist for President Cyril Ramaphosa. These are the lousy errors which might be made due to unbridled triumphalist factionalism.
Will the ANC alternate its corrupt ways?
