According to a statement by the DA in North West the Premier, Supra Mahumapelo can still do the honourable thing and resign before he faces the Motion of No Confidence against him tomorrow, Tuesday 17 April 2018.

They say “it is time the Gupta-Premier steps down for the sake of the people of the North West you need total change.”

The leader of the DA in North West, Joe McGluwa says they will support the EFF’s motion of no confidence.

According to McGluwa the people have no faith or trust in his ability nor his integrity to give the people of North West the opportunities to grow, develop and break the cycle of poverty and if he really cares about the North West he will leave office today.

McGluwa said some of the scandals during his time in office include:

• The monument in honour of Jacob Zuma – a broken man who now faces corruption charges;
• Tenders to the Guptas worth millions while the people of North West suffer without basics like water and electricity;
• His open affiliation and proud friendship with the Guptas who is accused of State Capture;
• His disrespect for the Parliament of South Africa – swearing at opposition party members;
• The Premier flatly refuses to share the damning forensic reports that have been commissioned by his office, pertaining to provincial departments, provincial entities, municipalities, and municipal entities;
• Hospitals and clinics are understaffed and without resources. There are no proper patient transport systems in place;
• Towns and cities are falling apart due to no maintenance due to corrupt spending by government;
• Communities and schools are subjected to bucket toilets and pit toilets still – 24 years into our democracy; and
• His open incitement to violence and race division during the Coligny protests.
