Embattled Tshwane Mayor Stevens Mokgalapa is going to face a disciplinary hearing brought against him by his party, the DA.

The DA’s federal executive met over the weekend to consider a report its federal local commission (FLC) had put together, saying Mokgalapa had a case to answer to.

Although the party has found that there was no proof that embattled Tshwane mayor Stevens Mokgalapa and former transport and roads MMC Sheila Senkubuge had sex in the office, he will still face a disciplinary hearing.

Sekunbuge has since resigned in the wake of the scandal, and Mogalapa was placed on special leave. 

Mokgalapa has been on suspension since November following the release of an audio recording of him and former MMC for roads and transport Sheila Senkubuge engaging in an alleged sex act at the municipality's Hatfield offices.

Whilst the Mokgalapa scandal has bolstered the ANC's attempts in the municipality to remove the DA from its controlling seat, which was secured through a coalition government and the assistance of the EFF.

However, DA cannot say how long the DC will take to conclude. 

"With lawfare,you cannot put a timeline to it," but  "There is a need to resolve this matter as soon as possible."

Also DA's communications manager Mabine Seabe has resigned with immediate effect.

Seabe said he tendered his resignation to the party on Monday.
