The African National Congress (ANC) is disputing the outcome of the Nquthu municipal council meeting in which the Inkatha Freedom Party's (IFP) Siyabonga Kunene was elected mayor.

Nquthu is composed of 15 IFP councillors, 14 ANC, two National Freedom Party (NFP) while the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and the Democratic Alliance (DA) have one each.

The ruling party argues that the IFP, DA and EFF went ahead with a meeting on Monday despite a directive from the provincial Department of Cooperative Affairs to postpone the sitting.

“We have written letters to the IEC and the Cogta and we have also instructed our lawyers to interdict everything that happened on that day. We are still waiting to be informed of the day where the council meeting will be convened to elect office bearers,” says Regional Secretary Bheki Lembethe
