The DA-led coalition government in Nelson Mandela Bay’s zero tolerance stance on criminality was vindicated after justice was served on a delinquent local ANC leader and councillor.
Therefore the Democratic Alliance (DA) in the Eastern Cape welcomes that ANC PR Councillor in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, Andile Lungisa, has been found guilty of assault with the intent to cause Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH).
Lungisa faced charges over the assault of DA councillor Rano Kayser. This after he smashed a glass jug filled with water over Cllr Kayser’s head during a NMB council meeting in October 2016.
He is the second ANC councillor in NMB recently found guilty of a criminal offence. Bongo Nombiba was last month convicted on charges of fraud and money laundering. This underlines the lack of credibility and proves our long held assertion that the ANC caucus in NMB cannot be entrusted with people’s lives and money. The DA challenges the ANC to implement its conference resolution and remove these two convicted criminals.
Indeed our justice system has once again proved its independence by making it clear that nobody is above the law regardless of the high position you occupy.
The DA-led coalition in NMB has zero tolerance for criminal behaviour and this shows that the DA will stop at nothing to ensure that those responsible for criminal activities are brought to justice.
