Athol Trollip: Ousted mayor says the city has been “stolen"

 

Athol Trollip was elected mayor of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (Port Elizabeth) in August 2016 with the help of other opposition parties. Last month, he was unseated. The DA challenged his ousting but lost in court on 20 September 2018.

 

Trollip will address the Cape Town Press Club on “how to save a stolen city”. He will speak candidly about his predecessor, Danny Jordaan; the establishment of the coalition that gave him the mayorship; its travails, and what he describes as the subsequent “political coup d’état”. He will also share his views on the DA’s campaign and the party’s chances in the upcoming general election.
