The State of the Municipality Address (SOMA) at eMalahleni Local Municipality did not go as exactly as planned after its mayor collapsed in the venue earlier today, Thursday, 30 June.
013 News broke the news by tweeting that the mayor, Connie Nkalintshana collapsed following her demonstration that tap water is safe to drink by allegedly quenching down a glass of tap water in front of the guests.
A photograph of a group of people seemingly surrounding a person believed to be the mayor was posted by the publication on Twitter.
THE APPOINTMENT OF EMALAHLENI MAYOR
Nkalintshana was elected new mayor early this year after her predecessor Linah Malatjie passed away in a car accident with her husband in January.
Councillor Nkalintshana also served as a chief whip in the local municipality.
THE LATEST CONDITION OF THE MAYOR
It is unclear at this stage whether the mayor was taken to a medical facility for examination after the alleged incident.
This is a developing story.
