According to Eyewitness News, city manager Moeketsi Mosola cancelled a year end function in the metro and it sparked new cries for the minister of the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, the premier of Gauteng, and the MEC of Cogta to put Tshwane under administration.

Briefly.co.za gathered the ANC claims Mosola is refusing to release funds for service delivery needs and it has proven to be problematic.

ANC’s Tshwane spokesperson Bafuze Yabo called on the minister, premier and MEC to take a closer look at irregularities, adding it can't be "business as usual".

The ANC also referred to an alleged payment of R500m to GladAfrica, a company they claimed was irregularly appointed.

The party added they believed the large sums of money transferred into GladAfrica's account would be used to foot the DA's election campaign.

It is not the first time Mosola's relationship with GladAfrica made headlines. Tshwane mayor Solly Msimanga tried, and failed, several times to remove the city manager from his post over his controversial ties with the consulting company.

Mosola dubbed the ploy to have him axed a 'witch hunt' and he added he was 'disturbed' by Msimanga's attempts to have him removed.
