Former DA councillor quits party after conviction


Disgraced former DA councillor Wilma Brady ceased her party membership after being convicted of fraud and contravention of the Public Finance Management Act last month.

She is expected to be sentenced at Bellville Commercial Crimes Court on September 4.

Brady, who was also the chairperson of the Oostenberg sub-council, fraudulently appointed a service provider to build 33 low-cost houses worth approximately R3million in Malibu Village in Blue Downs without following due tender processes.

She further misrepresented the provincial human settlements department by providing a letter of appointment to the service provider on behalf of the department

Brady appeared in court on Friday where she reportedly broke down, pleading for a suspended sentence.

She could not be reached for comment on her reasons to withdraw her party membership.

DA provincial spokesperson Odette Cason would not say whether a disciplinary hearing was instituted, only telling the Cape Times that she was no longer a councillor when she ceased her membership.
