ANC cuts ties with Kannaland mayor Jeffrey Donson and Icosa

ANC cuts ties with Kannaland mayor Jeffrey Donson and Icosa, will assume opposition in the municipality (

Cape Town –The ANC inside the Western Cape has withdrawn its coalition agreement with convicted rapist Kannaland mayor Jeffrey Donson.

In 2008 Donson, who's a member of the Independent Civic Organisation of SA (Icosa), become convicted for the rape of a fifteen-year-antique lady during his tenure as mayor.

He was re-elected to the top spot following a coalition agreement with the ANC inside the province inside the current municipal elections.

Since the announcement of his 2nd time period as mayor, much backlash has been received from child activists and NGOs who are opposed to him leading the network whilst having a criminal report, and there have been developing calls for the ANC to choose on whether or not to keep the connection with Icosa.

ANC spokesperson within the Western Cape Sifiso Mtsweni said on Wednesday the birthday party’s negotiating group had been mandated to system the choice of the provincial management to withdraw from the coalition. “Yesterday the provincial coordinator visited Kannaland to effect this decision. The ANC Speaker of the municipality is being withdrawn and we will assume opposition within the municipality,” he said.

Last week Icosa’s provincial chairperson David Kamfer slammed the media for developing a bad narrative about Donson. “The surprising poor media insurance is a nicely-orchestrated schedule to diminish the coolest paintings performed via Icosa for the community of Kannaland and to impugn the Constitutional rights of the network to opt for public officials of their desire.

“He became convicted of statutory rape and indecent attack in 2008 of a minor who lived as a life partner of a 50- year-antique guy for some time, and as such, had no knowledge of her age at the time and assumed that she changed into of criminal age,” Kamfer stated.
