He said in the past few weeks, the city had shown its ability to rise when some locals were displaced by floods, sub-stations caught alight during the load-shedding crisis and areas such as Hammanskraal and Cullinan faced a water crisis.
These, however, were only some of the challenges the DA faced last year.
Its federal leader, Mmusi Maimane, quit and was soon joined by Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba. An ANC councillor now occupies Mashaba’s seat.
DA Tshwane mayor Steven Mokgalapa made headlines when an audio clip surfaced in November in which he could be heard allegedly having sexual intercourse with the now former MMC Stella Senkubuge. During the 30-minute audio clip, the pair also engaged in talk about toppling some government officials.
In addition to that, the DA rushed to the courts last month to put on hold the implementation of the motion of no confidence against Mokgalapa, which saw him being booted from his mayoral seat. Moodey labelled this a coup by the ANC.
He said the DA had since filed court papers to halt the motion of no confidence resolutions from being implemented.
“We have submitted our documents to the courts and it is now in the hands of the courts to decide. We trust the courts will act as soon as possible,” he said.
Moodey was asked during the briefing whether he was confident that the DA would retain power in Tshwane.
“I am not going to speculate. What we have always done was to ensure political stability to give the people of Tshwane, Johannesburg and anywhere else peace of mind,” he said.
He said all the challenges the DA had faced simply gave them the opportunity to strengthen the party and build its character.
