Mayor denies council fist fights

SELEBI-PHIKWE: Selebi-Phikwe Town Council (SPTC) mayor Tebogo Matlhogonolo has denied reports of fist fights among councillors in the chambers.

The mayor told a kgotla meeting in Botshabelo recently that councillors, with their different personalities and perspectives, are bound to disagree on some issues. "Our disagreement is not a sin. It would be very abnormal for us to always agree on issues. Just gauge us on the level of services we deliver to you not the way we disagree on issues," he added.

The mayor also said his councillors work as a coherent team as if they are from the same political party.One resident Chalido Madome said during the comments session, "You are fighting in council, we know that. If your battles as councillors have stopped then say so, not that there are no fights".
