Cape Town politics: Chaos at De Lille’s ‘farewell’ as councillors resign, citing party racism

There were dramatic scenes in the Cape Town City Council on Thursday as five DA councillors resigned from the party, citing racism and expressing support for outgoing Mayor Patricia de Lille in a blistering press conference. The council is due to consider a report from law firm Bowmans which reportedly implicates De Lille in corruption. To add to the chaos, it is still unclear whether De Lille intends to step down as mayor after all.
