An East London woman is suing the DA for R10m for, she says, interviewing her for a councillor position in a toilet.

DA member Ntombenhle Rulumeni claims that two party officials escorted her to a toilet at an East London golf course, where she was interviewed for a ward councillor position ahead of the 2016 local government elections.

She has lodged a civil claim against her party for humiliating her and undermining her dignity, and for loss of income.

Rulumeni this week told the East London high court that she joined the DA in 2011. Before the 2016 election, she applied to be a ward councillor in the Buffalo City metro.

Her application was rejected.
