- A secrete ballot has been called for tomorrows motion of no confidence vote against Premier Supra Mahumapelo
- The feeling is that Mahumapelo is for the Gupta family
- A recall is being called before a debate is created around the matter
Susanna Dantjie, Speaker of Legislature, has been called upon by the opposition party in the North West to allow a secret ballot during the motion of no confidence vote against Premier Supra Mahumapelo which will be held tomorrow.
This request is after Dantjie announced last week that the motion of no confidence against Mahumapelo was to proceed through an open ballot system. The motion of no confidence against Mahumapelo was tabled by the EFF following several corruption allegations. The DA Provincial leader, Joseph McGluwa, told OFM News that his party supports the motion. However, to avoid intimidation and to protect ANC members who would want to vote with the opposition, McGluwa also feels the motion should be held in secret.
He also stated that Mahumapelo is not a premier for the province but for the Gupta family.
Currently embroiled in a number of corruption allegations, the latest rumor is that Mahumapelo got a state-owned company, Denel, to pay out a R1 million bursary to his son.
Mahumapelo has made headlines lately for allegedly introducing ANC Youth League Leader, Colleen Maine, to the controversial Gupta family. It was the Gupta’s that helped him buy a luxurious house in Pretoria.
The Gupta-linked company, Mediosa, which he is also allegedly had involvement with, had deals with the provincial health department which resulted in the Gupta-linked company scoring R30 million advance for a single mobile clinic.
Meanwhile, the South African Communist Party (SACP) is calling on the national leadership of the ANC to recall him before a debate on a motion of no confidence against him.
