This development comes as the council meets to elect his successor following back and forth court battles between the DA and Gauteng government which saw the Supreme Court of Appeal uphold a High Court ruling setting aside the dissolution of that metro’s council.
Mokgalapa courted controversy during his tenure, even been placed on suspension by the DA over a leaked sex tape involving him and a former MMC at the city’s offices.
ActionSA leader Herman Mashaba has also dismissed claims that the former mayor has quit the DA in order to join his new outfit.
