George mayor suspended

On Monday 28 May 2018, the the chairperson of the DA's East Region, Jaco Londt, confirmed that the mayor of George, Melvin Naik has been suspended from all Democratic Alliance (DA) activities for a period of 60 days.

The suspension of Naik came on the day that he returned from leave after the Hawks performed a raid on municipal offices following allegations of irregularities in tender processes.

According to Londt, the suspension does not prevent Naik from performing his mayoral duties.

"I can confirm that the PEC considered the request from the regional executive to suspend the George mayor, Melvin Naik, from party and party-related activities. They agreed that he should be suspended but decided that it could be done for a period of 60 days," he said.

Londt said that the internal party processes as well as any investigations by the Hawks will now run its course, after which the DA will reconsider the situation with regard to the position of the mayor at the end of the suspension period.
