Rustenburg speaker quits amid court action


Rustenburg – Rustenburg council speaker Sheila Mabale-Huma has resigned from her position after a high court action challenging the validity of her election last month.

This is the second time Mabale-Huma has been forced out of the office of the speaker – she was initially fired from the same position by the ANC in 2008.

But she was elected speaker again in a drama-filled first council sitting last month, which saw the ANC retain the platinum-rich municipality in the North West after the local government elections.

Her election came after votes recounted in a council sitting showed her tied with Bosa Ledwaba from the Forum for Service Delivery at 44 votes each.
