ehrenreichTMG Digital reports that Cosatu’s Western Cape provincial secretary Tony Ehrenreich has challenged Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille to a public debate, in an escalating war of words over how the city is run.  

De Lille told the Cape Town Press Club on Monday that Ehrenreich and the ANC had failed as an opposition party in the city.  Ehrenreich said in a subsequent statement:  "I am inviting the mayor to a public debate on the City of Cape Town at the Cape Town Press Club.  This would give us an opportunity to ask the mayor why she panders to rich developers…”  De Lille told the Press Club that other cities were‚ in fact‚ more segregated than Cape Town.
