Democratic Alliance (DA) Leader, Mmusi Maimane, together with DA National Chairperson, Athol Trollip, and National Spokesperson, Solly Malatsi, are expected to address Trollip's ouster as Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Mayor on Tuesday.

According to the DA, the media briefing will detail "how the DA will fight the return of the Metro to a corrupt ANC-EFF crony coalition".

In a surprising ending to a dramatic day at the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, former Deputy Executive Mayor, Mongameli Bobani, emerged as the new Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Executive Mayor after Councillors voted to remove Trollip.

Trollip was removed in absentia after the DA-led coalition, which includes the Patriotic Alliance, the African Christian Democratic Party and the Congress of the People, walked out.

With the help of DA Councillor, Victor Manyathi, the opposition parties were able to somewhat constitute a quorum.
