DA mayor Msimanga has dared former government spin doctor Mzwanele Manyito do his worst over his recent to Taiwan during Christmas weekend or let him be.
An apparently bold and fearless Msimanga was replying to Manyito’s threat to lay charges against him for embarking on the trip, which he said was fraudulent, a waste of taxpayer’s money and against the Zuma-led government’s advise.
Msimanga was this week granted the freedom of the city by the mayor of Taipei. The visit, sponsored by Taiwan, was organized by Taiwanese city’s mayor Ko Wen-je to explore possibilities for trade relations between the two cities.
Lashing out at the mayor, Manyito insisted that Msimanga only deceived South Africans into believing that he went to Taiwan for a bilateral business deal. He maintained that South Africa has no relationship with the foreign city.
“This is FRAUD. There are no Diplomatic relations between SA and Taiwan. You must be investigated for: Irregular use of Diplomatic passport; Breaching DIRCO policy; Security Risk,” he wrote on Twitter.
Hitting back at Manyi, the Tshwane executive mayor dared him to do his worst. He insisted that Manyi, a vocal supporter of the Gupta family and a firm backer of President Jacob Zuma, is the least of his problems in life.
“Lay criminal charges. I land on Tuesday. It’ll be great to have a SAPS welcoming party organised by yourself‚” Msimanga replied.
Executive mayor Solly Msimanga’s visit to Taiwan’s capital Taipei has continued to draw heavy criticism from opposition groups and rivals outside the Democratic Alliance (DA) rank.
The trip, as gathered, is being criticized because it reportedly breached the country’s foreign policies with China and also because Msimanga embarked on the trip against the government’s advice.

Department of International Relations and Co-operation spokesman Clayson Monyela said by going on the trip to that city, DA mayor Msimanga acted against South Africa’s upholding of the One China policy and that it contradicted the policy which recognised Beijing as the sole legitimate government of the People’s Republic of China.
“The visit is not sanctioned by the South African government. The executive mayor knows our views and was advised against undertaking this trip. We wouldn’t encourage him to go on such a trip because of the One China policy.”
