SHAKY GROUND: National Alliance councillors  Stag Mitchell, left, and Gary van Niekerk

'Mind boggling' is how Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Gary van Niekerk describes the decision by city manager Noxolo Nqwazi to declare two vacancies in the council from his party, National Alliance, this week.

Van Niekerk and Stag Mitchell’s seats were declared vacant by Nqwazi on Monday, following their expulsion by a parallel structure of the party linked to Japie Jansen. 

Jansen and Van Niekerk both see themselves as president of the party.

In Behind The Herald Headlines with Daron Mann this week, we catch up with van Niekerk and Jansen.
