Former Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Danny Jordaan has resigned as the ANC opposition leader in the city council.
The ANC has called a press conference for later this afternoon where the announcement will be officially made.
But ANC regional spokesman Gift Ngqondi confirmed Jordaan’s resignation this morning.
Since the DA-led coalition took over the running of the city, Jordaan has missed all three council meetings.
ANC caucus whip councillor Litho Suka told The Herald last month that Jordaan had applied for a month’s leave after being booked off sick.
“Danny is a councillor in the metro. He is not going anywhere,” Suka said at the time.
