Johannesburg - Businessman and Black Like Me founder Herman Mashaba is the Democratic Alliance's Johannesburg mayoral candidate for this year's local government elections.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane announced on Saturday that Mashaba had been selected by the electoral college to represent the party in the metro.

Both nominees were interviewed by a panel.

Mashaba announced in December that he was making himself available as a nominee for the position.
