THE ANC provincial working committee in Mpumalanga has recalled the executive mayor of Thaba Chweu municipality Clara Ndlovu, pictured, and suspended 10 councillors.
"The ANC, in its commitment to service delivery and good governance that is informed by the will of the majority of our people, has . decided that executive mayor comrade Clara Ndlovu be recalled," provincial secretary general Lucky Ndinisa said yesterday.
This was in the interest of restoring stability and ensuring efficient and effective service delivery, he said.
The 10 ANC councillors allegedly attended a meeting in which a vote of no confidence against Ndlovu was passed without consultation with the leadership.
Mashishing residents had been calling for Ndlovu's removal, accusing her of being an ineffective leader and corrupt - and resorted to violence when the ANC kept her as mayor.
