- The ANC in Tshwane has said it is willing to work with the DA
- This comes after the EFF said it would no longer vote with the DA
- The ANC says they will work with the DA to ensure service delivery, but have warned the party not to take their support for granted
The ANC in Tshwane has said that they are willing to work with the DA and other parties "that put the interests of our people first".
This comes after the EFF said they would no longer be voting with the DA in the city.
The DA has said that the EFF's decision to abandon their partnerships in Tshwane and Johannesburg could result in the DA losing power in the metros.
While Malema had also said that the Red Berets would no longer vote with the DA, he added that his party would not vote with the ANC either. Now it appears that the ANC, at least in Tshwane, is open to siding with the DA.
Dr Kgosi Maepa, the ANC's Tshwane chairperson, said that that his party would work with the DA to pass the budget and ensure service delivery, according to Sowetan Live.
However, he warned that the DA should not take the ANC's support for granted, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
"We remain on opposition benches," he said.
This all comes in the wake of the collapse of the DA and EFF's relationship in Tshwane. James Selfe, the DA's federal executive chairperson, says this is because the DA refused to give in to some of the EFF's demands.
These included installing an EFF member as mayor in Tshwane, among others.
