Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Mongameli Bobani is unlikely to survive the motion of no confidence against him next Tuesday, with the ANC and DA - who hold the majority in council - confirming that they will vote against him.

 DA leader Athol Trollip and ANC regional task team coordinator Luyolo Nqakula have confirmed to News24 that their parties will vote to axe Bobani.  Without a clear mandate, the DA won the majority of seats in council during the 2016 watershed elections, with 57, and the ANC walked away with 50 seats.
