Western Cape Transport and Public Works MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela has been suspended.
Premier Alan Winde made the announcement a short while ago.
This follows a probe by the DA’s federal legal commission into allegations that Madikizela – who’s also the party’s provincial leader – lied about his qualifications on his CV.
Winde appointed the Western Cape MEC of Human Settlements, Tertius Simmers, to act in Madikizela’s position.
Madikizela is also one of the contenders for the mayor of Cape Town.
