Maphetle1 Tlokwe: Judge rules ousting of mayor lawful

The North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria has dismissed an application to nullify the council meeting at which Tlokwe mayor Maphetle Maphetle was unseated.

Judge Neil Tuchten found today that the meeting and the election of DA councillor Annette Combrink as mayor was lawful.

He also found that Maphetle’s occupation of the mayoral office was unlawful.

On July 2, Combrink was voted in as the new mayor for the second time since November, unseating Maphetle.

The application by Maphetle and Tlokwe speaker Barei Segotso sought to have the meeting at which Combrink was voted in as mayor nullified.
