DA kicked out of Knysna Council

Jacobs F 

It would be remiss of the ANC to not welcome the recent developments in Knysna where the DA’s reign in that area came to an end on Wednesday, 31st August 2022, after councillors passed a vote of no confidence against mayor Levael Davis and his deputy, Mark Willemse.

The no confidence vote, which was tabled by the ANC, Patriotic Alliance and Plaaslike Besorgde Inwoners(PBI), carried 11 votes in support of it and 10 against. 

Aubrey Tsengwa from the ANC has taken over the post of Mayor from Levael Davis, a DA member, whose party was in coalition with Mark Willemse’s Knysna Independent Movement.

The ANC also secured the position of Speaker, which is to be occupied by Mncedisi Skosana, who praised Tsengwa as “the face of the town”. 

The PlaaslikeBesorgde Inwoners’s Alberto Marbi was elected Deputy Speaker.

We wish all the newly elected members well and hope that they serve the people of Knysna with fairness and transparency.
