ANC gets MONC through against Drakenstein mayor - DA WCape

Conrad Poole headed one of the best run municipalities in the country, notes Tertuis Simmers

Service delivery excellence in Drakenstein to continue despite removal of Mayor

28 February 2024

The DA in the Western Cape notes the removal of Drakenstein Local Municipal Mayor, Conrad Poole, through a motion of no confidence tabled by the ANC in council today.

Drakenstein is one of the best-run municipalities in the country as confirmed by their back-to-back clean audit reports and many service delivery accolades. The DA assures residents that service delivery will continue unaffected, and since we have a majority in council, a new DA mayor will be elected in due course.

In the interim, Deputy Mayor Gert Combrink will take over the responsibilities of the Office of the Executive Mayor.
