GOOD calls for prosecution of Mayor of Cape Town

Published on

GOOD’s Secretary-General wants the City of Cape Town Mayor, Dan Plato to be charged and prosecuted for the violation of COVID-19 regulations for hosting political gatherings.

On Tuesday, 29 June 2021, Brett Herron, the Secretary-General of GOOD, called out Dan Plato, the City of Cape Town Mayor, for violating COVID-19 regulations. According to Herron, Plato hosted 25 political gatherings across the city to hand out his Mayoral Community Service Awards.

Herron claimed that these gatherings were unlawful and unnecessary, and believes that Plato should be charged and prosecuted for breaching Section 21 of the regulations, which strictly prohibit all gatherings, including social and political gatherings. Herron has called it disgraceful that the mayor of a major city acted with such defiance and disdain for the law, and for the health and safety of the people he is meant to serve.

Herron also addressed the matter in relation to the constitutional ruling against former president, Jacob Zuma. He pointed out that he believes that the judgement cemented the fact that no one is above the law.
