'Embarrassed’ Mzwandile Masina to lay charges against mayor and speaker after council brawl

Former Ekurhuleni mayor Mzwandile Masina said he would on Friday lay charges against Ekurhuleni speaker Raymond Dlamini and mayor Tania Campbell after he was dragged out of council chambers on Thursday.

Masina placed the blame on them after Ekurhuleni metro police department (EMPD) members and private security officials dragged him out of council proceedings.  

“I was badly beaten and am still ashamed that as an elected party representative, I could be manhandled that way. There was no fight. We just differed about the issues. They opted to use an iron first and humiliate us,” Masina said.

The person recording the second video appears to protect Masina from other council members, saying the ANC members had been the subject of an attack.

Speaking to Newzroom Afrika several hours later, Masina said he was thrown out of council for asking valid questions of the mayor following her delivery of the state of the city address.

“There was no need for them to manhandle and assault me. I will open a case against the mayor, the speaker and the MEC of police tomorrow because I am a public representative and have all the rights in council to raise issues. I never threw bottles. All I did was to call point of orders when the speaker was ignoring glaring mistakes” said Masina.

However, in a bid to regain control, the summoned security officers leapt into action. In trying to disperse the crowded masses, they picked out Mzwandile Masina as one of the major troublemakers.

Video footage shows the moment he was booted out of the chamber: Several guards grab hold of the ANC heavyweight, and in near-comical fashion, they rush him out of the house amid a chorus of jeers and taunts…
