Mzwandile Masina resigns as ANC councillor in Ekurhuleni

African National Congress (ANC) councillor Mzwandile Masina has resigned as chairperson of the party in the City of Ekurhuleni.

Masina's resignation comes after he and his regional executive faced backlash for ignoring an instruction to withdraw a motion of no confidence against the city Mayor Tanya Campbell.

He is also expected to apologise to ANC members for destabilising coalition negotiations the party was having with the EFF in its attempt to regain the Ekurhuleni municipality.

Masina has effectively avoided a disciplinary hearing and possible suspension as regional chair.

The ANC in Gauteng earlier this month resolved to charge Masina for defying the party and bringing it into disrepute.

This after he went ahead with a motion of no confidence in DA mayor Tania Campbell earlier this month, despite warnings from the PEC that it was still negotiating a deal with the EFF.

According to insiders, the motion was premature as provincial leaders had not concluded their discussions with the red berets.

ANC Gauteng spokesperson Lesego Makhubela confirmed Masina had undertaken to resign as a councillor.

TimesLIVE further understands that Masina was on Thursday attending a council meeting, where he is expected to tender his resignation.

Earlier this month, the ANC’s Gauteng leadership said Masina would face disciplinary action for allegedly defying an instruction from the PEC to withdraw a motion of no confidence against the Democratic Alliance‘s (DA) Tania Campbell in October.
