Nelson Mandela Bay: Trollip is the orchestrator of his own demise

Demist mogafe <It looks as if the Democratic Alliance federal chairman Cllr Athol Trollip, of the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, seems to be suffering from selective amnesia.

Having listened to the radio on what Trollip said in his address to the Cape Town Press Club, the [...]

Athol Trollip is telling lies; here are the hard facts

I trust that the High Court will separate fact from fiction and that the honourable court will see through the [...]
