DA leader Athol Trollip says their names apparently appear on the African National Congress’s (ANC) Proportional Representative (PR) list.
They are Penny Naidoo, Nico du Plessis and Brian Kivedo.
However, Trollip says he’s not surprised as the three councillors failed the party’s stringent candidate selection procedure.
Trollip says he’s given the councillors until the end of the day to confirm or deny that they have indeed joined the ANC.
“For all intents and purposes they were looking for another job, and it appears they’ve found that other job with the ANC [so] good luck to them. But they can’t continue to be DA councillors if they’ve looking for a job with the ANC.”
The ANC will submit its candidates list to the Independent Electoral Commission tomorrow.
Yesterday, the party said it would reveal the names of candidates within two weeks.
