“I haven’t seen the recalling letters but what I know is we had a discussion around certain mayors and councilors who are accused of issues to do with corruption which are affecting service delivery in the cities.

A lot of councilors in different cities were discussed, as of now, I don’t have any official letter in front of me, to confirm the recalls.
