Cape Town – Beaufort West Mayor Truman Prince might knowhis fate by the end of the week.

The Central Karoo region of the ANC was expected to startdisciplinary steps against him on

Wednesday.

This followed a meeting between Prince and the provincialand regional leadership on Tuesday.

Prince is in trouble with the party over allegations thathe requested a tender be given to a construction company which was"sympathetic and having a relationship with the ANC".

He called for the construction companies to benefit sothey could, in turn, inject funds into the party's election campaign.

Both the national and provincial ANC have condemned hiscall.

The mayor also faces charges of assaulting a femaletraffic officer in Leeu Gamka in the Karoo recently.

DA Western Cape leader Patricia de Lille welcomed thedisciplinary inquiry.

She called for Prince to be immediately suspended pendingthe outcome of the inquiry.

"The mind boggles that the ANC is handling thismatter with kid gloves while Mr Prince has obviously brought the party into disrepute,"she said.

De Lille said this was especially important in thebuild-up to the local government elections.

"ANC candidates like Prince, who besmirch the oathof their office, should not be allowed to continuously make a mockery of thecommunities they ought to serve."

Provincial ANC acting chairperson Khaya Magaxa said thematter should be finalised by Thursday.
