Please explain to this House what right they had to invade the political space especially as the matter of removing councillors was still before the courts and on appeal; what right they had to disarm the bodyguards of the mayor and the municipal manager; how soon the Minister intends suspending the entire unit; and whether our SAPS now serve at the will of political factions within the ANC?
This morning they were still occupying the building. Is this an SAPS coup d'tat?
