The DA’s caucus deputy leader in Cape Town, JP Smith, is out of the woods for now after a proposed motion of no confidence against him was withdrawn.
Two Cape Town councillors, Courtney Van Wyk and Steven Vuba, put the motion forward last week, reports EWN’s Jason Felix.
The motion claims JP Smith has been at the forefront of actively driving disunity within the DA caucus.
Smith, a high-ranking member of the City of Cape Town’s executive, has also been accused of behaving destructively.
Western Cape leader Bonginkosi Madikizela advised the councillors to abandon the motion ahead of the DA’s caucus meeting on Monday morning.
Madikizela promised to attend to their complaints amid simmering divisions within the party, Felix reports.
