Trollip said information and reports were outstanding that would affect some of the agenda items for the council meeting on Thursday, including the vote of no confidence.
The speaker had been consulted about postponing the council meeting, he said.
The outstanding information pertained to Bobani as well as a forensic investigation by PricewaterhouseCoopers into irregular and unauthorised payments. There were also investigations outstanding about Expanded Public Works Programme workers and litter pickers.
UDM leader Bantu Holomisa said on Wednesday that Bobani was ready to respond in council to all allegations against him
Bobani’s alleged “erratic behaviour has led to instability in this government and has on a number of occasions unnecessarily delayed important council business and service delivery”, reads the notice tabled to council calling for the motion of no
confidence in Bobani.
Holomisa challenged Trollip to table in council any evidence he had to back his allegations against Bobani or the findings of any inquiry, if one had been done — in which case, the council had the last word.
“I doubt very much that Bobani has violated any rules and any regulations,” he said.
Holomisa said DA leader Mmusi Maimane, with whom he had met in Cape Town this week, had told him he would speak to DA members about the motion on Bobani.
