Chaos erupted this week over the suspension of the mayor of Nkonkobe in Alice, Anele Ntsangani.
The confusion broke out during a discussion over the suspension of Ntsangani. Ntsangani was suspended for allegedly misusing the municipality's funds.
Police had to use pepper sprays to maintain order when a group demanding Ntsangani's reinstatement tried to enter the meeting's venue forcefully. Another group was demanding that Ntsangani must go.
"This issue has divided even the area's councillors," said Nkululeko Landu, a community leader.
Landu said a task team should be set up to probe the controversy surrounding the mayor. The issue should also be referred to MEC for housing and local government Toko Xasa.
