A political confusion is playing out in Johannesburg and Pretoria with the far left DA still trying to control the city council in both cities.
Eventually, they can become the biggest losers because of their hand around the neck politics with the radicals in the Red Brigade.
In Johannesburg, there is currently a battle going on between the DA and the Red Brigade over the mayor’s office, which now poses the possibility that the IFP will triumph in this sage while the other two are fighting.
Doubt also exists about the DA and its Red partner’s unity in Pretoria while the first sounds are heard of the Reds claiming the mayor’s office because Zille is now back in the DA.
The possibility of a motion of no confidence in the DA could also sink the ship, says political observers in Pretoria.
