    eMalahleni mayor allegedly collapses after drinking tap water

    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.

    “BREAKING: eMalahleni mayor Connie Nkalintshana collapses during the State of the Municipality Address (SOMA). The mayor collapsed following her demonstrating that tap water is safe to drink by drinking a glass of Witbank’s tap water in front of invites guests,”

    the original tweet read.

    A photograph of a group of people seemingly surrounding a person believed to be the mayor was posted by the publication on Twitter.


    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.


    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.
