Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 4 June 2013. 16h45. By 15h30 no opposing affidavit had been filed with the Western Cape High Court.
Here are the documents filed by Speaker Johannes Stoffels earlier today:
The municipality also released a media statement late this afternoon:
The Western Cape High Court will now hear Stoffels v. Van Wyk and others only on Wednesday as the court needs to apply its mind to the founding affidavits.
Media reports that the DA had taken control of the Oudtshoorn Council is misleading as the council meeting of 31 May was properly closed by the Speaker with the status quo firmly intact.
The licitness of the subsequent meeting of 17 councillors is disputed and until the High Court rules in the matter statements of a change of government is not only premature, but false.
The Oudtshoorn Municipality trusts that the media, who has given this matter a high profile, will report the correct facts meticulously.
So, we wait and see…
