Bad news hits Julius Malema this morning after his Top secret was revealed by an EFF member.

After its mayoral up-and-comer Jeff Zwane was elected unchallenged, the DA has taken control of the Metsimaholo district inside the Free State. 

After Selloane Motjeane, the EFF's wonder political decision, abdicated a few days later, Zwane's political contest was announced this week. 


Because her political race was the result of advice from disgruntled ANC councilors, Motjeane was pushed to deny by utilizing the EFF. 


Last week, EFF leader Julius Malema told the media that he had advised Motjeane to resign because the ANC group that had supported her had allegedly been pressuring her to engage in "illegal activities" for their advantage. 


"Despite the fact that she was content, the ANC was making demands and requesting illegal things at the time. There are no EFF members in the Metsimaholo district. For what reason would it be a good idea for us to join an affiliation that is bound to fail because of the reality balloting? Could we rely on the ANC councilors' attitudes? We don't have a working relationship with each other "He stated his thoughts. 


The following is why Marlene van Staden, the next DA civic chairperson, was chosen by a coin toss. 


Marlene van Staden, an alleged DA councilor, has won the mayoral election in the adjacent Limpopo district of Modimolle-Mookgophong.

Because of the ANC's training in Sowetan, it has become an important step in assisting the EFF in gaining control of the area.

The revelation was closed this week by ANC Fezile Dabi and facilitator Thabo Mabasa. 


"We came to the conclusion that we would provide them with the mayorship, as well as the speakership, the boss whip, and a few MMCs. Two section 79 boards [including the metropolitan public records committee] were taken. We have to strike a balance between delivering services and improving administration "According to Mabasa. 


He explained to the aide that the ANC in the area would prefer not to lose the region to the DA in the same way that Gauteng's birthday celebration did. 


In any case, it's unclear how Zwane would adjust to his new government within the district, given that the ANC holds the speakership and chief whip positions. 


Within the district, the festival has sixteen seats, while the DA and EFF each have twelve seats.
