Executive Mayor of Tshwane Solly Msimanga is readying himself for another motion of no confidence, which gets under way on Thursday at council chambers in Pretoria.
Msimanga previously survived a motion of no confidence, led by the EFF, in August after it was disallowed due to a technicality.
This current motion has been brought by the ANC.
At the last Council speaker Katlego Mathebe disallowed the EFF motion saying it did not comply with the rules of council because it was not written and had no accompanying proposal.
Julius Malema previously warned the DA that what had happened to former Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Athol Trollip would also happen to Msimanga.
