MAHIKENG MAIL – MAHIKENG: Calls for North West Premier, Supra Mahumapelo to step down spread even wider this week when several organizations joined the already high number of opposers to Mahumapelo’s premiership in the North West province.
Following recent demands from opposition parties including the Economic Freedom Fighters, (EFF), the Democratic Alliance, Save North West, Revolutionary Council and the South African Communist Party (SACP) for Mahumapelo to give way for a new leader in the region, various organizations took to the streets this week to urge Mahumapelo to resign as premier of the province. They also called on HOD of the health department, Dr Thabo Lekalakala to resign for his part in the controversial pre-payment of R30m and R180m to the MEDIOSA mobile clinic company.
