Cape Town Mayor Helen Zille is "hopeful" that the ANC-controlled provincial government will back down from its "power grab" in the city.

But if MEC Richard Dyantyi decides to go ahead with his controversial change in the law, she will take the matter to the highest court in the land.

This was the reaction of the DA's Zille yesterday as the provincial and local government minister, Sydney Mufamadi, prepares for a round of meetings to resolve the impasse between Zille and Dyantyi. - Waghied Misbach
