Sheila Senkubuge Biography

Sheila Senkubuge has resigned from her position days after she was placed on special leave. She is accused of having sexual relations with Tshwane mayor Steven Mokgalapa in the officer and sharing sensitive information about colleagues in the metro.

In his resignation letters seen by EWN, Senkubuge thanks the DA for giving him the opportunity to serve as a black and younger MMC.

Mokgalapa and Senkubuge have denied being in a romantic relationship.

The mayor has described a filtered audio recording that is believed to be that of the couple discussing confidential information about their colleagues and participating in sexual relations as blackmail.

John Moody, of the district attorney, said: “I also believe that a private citizen has filed criminal charges that he could be under the control of the voters … That is for the IEC to handle.”

Sheila Senkubuge Resign

In her four page resignation letter, Senkubuge said she was stepping down as MMC and as PR Councillor and noted there had been attempts to “vilify” her and remove focus from her work in office.

“In light of recent events, and despite the many successes, it has become clear that attempts to vilify me are taking focus away from the purpose of my role in office. This will in turn inevitably affect service delivery to our residents”, she said.

“Therefore, as much as it is with regret that I tender my resignation with immediate effect, I do so in order to not betray the spirit, the struggle and the sacrifice that our forebears made and the charge they gave us, which is to always put our people first, as articulated in the Batho Pele principles.”

Stevens Mokgalapa ‘special leave’

On Sunday, November 24, 2019, a 30-minute audio clip was leaked online, which was supposedly a conversation between the couple. The recording suggested that there was a sexual relationship between them and immediately provoked calls from the ANC and the DA in Tshwane for the mayor of the DA to resign. They can also be heard mocking some of their colleagues.

Following the controversy, Mokgalapa was placed on special leave and on Thursday, November 28, 2019, a motion of distrust against him failed. The district attorney appointed Abel Tau as interim mayor while the party reaches the bottom of the accusations.
