The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has filed a notice of intent to bring a motion of no confidence against Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Athol Trollip.
The notice, dated March 14, is signed by EFF councillor Zilindile Vena and Yolisa Yako.
It calls for a special council sitting on March 29.
In the notice letter, Vena wrote that Trollip and the DA in the city “blatantly disregard and fail to prioritise the poor people”.
The EFF wrote that Trollip failed to champion the plight of the poor by allowing the DA to attempt to remove informal traders from the streets.
“His (Trollip’s) failure to act in such instances speaks volumes,” the notice reads.
The EFF went on to accuse Trollip of redirecting money, aimed at tarring roads in various wards, to use towards Ironman 40km stretch roads.
