The City of Johannesburg has given the African National Congress (ANC) until Friday to pay the metro R300,000 in legal fees or face having its property at Luthuli House attached.
Last week the city obtained a writ of execution against the governing party for its failure to settle the amount.
It follows an application brought by the ANC in the High Court to table a motion of no confidence against mayor Herman Mashaba by secret ballot.
The court found the ANC motion lacked urgency and it awarded costs in favour of the city.
Spokesperson Tony Tavern-Turisan says the ANC has four days to pay up.
“Mayor Herman Mashaba has instructed the city’s lawyers that should the ANC fail to make payment by Friday the 15th of June, this Friday, we will not hesitate to proceed with executing this court order in which the sheriff of the High Court will be going to the ANC’s headquarters Luthuli House to attach R300,000 worth of property inside the building.”
