Members of several political parties gathered in front of the Matlosana municipal building where a new Mayor was supposed to be elected today.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that one person was stabbed when attendees became violent following the council meeting which delivered no result, leaving Matlosana without a Mayor.

It’s reported that the DA and EFF declined to vote.

Former Mayor Maetu Kgaile was ousted when a vote of no confidence against her succeeded in council last week.
