The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has expelled six Mogale City councillors who defied orders not to vote with the African National Congress (ANC) during the budget vote.
The party says the councillors ignored a ruling to boycott the vote.
EFF Spokesperson Tina Mabla says the vacancies will be filled by the end of the week.
“They were not supposed to attend any of the sittings in Mogale and also they voted for the proposed budget of the ANC. So, they were expelled. We are busy with the administration paperwork, it should be done by the end of the week.”
