The IEC said Senkubuge was a citizen during the 2016 municipal elections.

JOHANNESBURG - The Independent Electoral Commission on Sunday said according to the voter’s roll, former City of Tshwane Roads and Transport MMC Sheila Senkubuge was a South African citizen at the time of her appointment to the mayoral committee.

“We received an update sometime back that confirmed to us that she had been accorded a citizenship status on the National Population Register. And on that basis, when she first registered in 2013, she was accordingly placed on the voter’s roll,” said IEC chief electoral officer Sy Mamabolo. There was speculation around Senkubuge’s status after a complainant was laid against her. It was claimed that she was born in Uganda and was not a naturalised South African at the time of her appointment.

That followed her resignation as a councillor and MMC after leaked audio involving Tshwane Mayor Stevens Mokgalapa.

She does not look like a South African. Record her voice I want to hear something.

Leave her alone, jealous idiots !! She is SAfrican klaar. Enjoy Mogalapa, enjoy !!

These are the results of the horrors at Home Affairs, it's a mess, recently there was a case of a court official in Nelspruit who embezzled funds in a trust account meant for beneficiaries, she was said to be a Malawian with fraudulent documents, it's bad!🙏

This doesn't make any sense though, some say she was born in the eastern cape and then she was naturalized. Exactly which is which here. How she be on voters roll in 2013 when she was granted citizenship in 2016.
