Matongo: Johannesburg deserves better than the DA-EFF coalition which has no regard for the Constitution, lacks leadership skills and conducts itself as a law unto itself as it accelerates efforts to downgrade the City – with the Speaker’s protection to not account to the people of Johannesburg in Council.

30 Nov 21:47
Matongo: Since taking office, Mashaba has been resuscitating apartheid legacy approaches to leadership by seeking to confine the majority of Johannesburg’s poor residents to a slave mentality state through exclusion, limited service delivery and the replacement of empowerment initiatives with meaningless volunteer programmes.

30 Nov 21:46
Matongo: The ANC Greater Johannesburg Region is disappointed with the outcome of the motions and hope that history judges the DA-EFF coalition harshly for the destruction of a City that was once a shining example of South Africa’s progressive democracy.

30 Nov 21:46
Matongo: The coalition parties also turned a blind eye to the fact that good governance and the City’s finances are in shambles as they continue to loot while redirecting public attention away from their actions with unproven corruption allegations against the former administration of the African National Congress.

30 Nov 21:45
Matongo: The coalition government outright ignored how Mashaba and his Mayoral Committee have been breaking the law in appointing unqualified friends to top municipal positions, bringing in consultants to run the city while more than 30 000 city workers are made redundant.

30 Nov 21:45
ANC Greater Johannesburg Region spokesperson Jolidee Matongo: Despite multiple evidence of Mashaba’s immeasurable failure to deliver on the local government Constitutional Mandate of service delivery, socio-economic development and community inclusion on municipal matters, both the DA and the EFF, together with their other coalition partners prevented his removal.

Mashaba: Lastly, but in no way least, I want to thank the residents and civil servants of our city for faith they have shown our administration.

30 Nov 21:40
Mashaba: This is only the beginning of the change which we promised the residents of Johannesburg.

30 Nov 21:39
Mashaba: Though not a coalition partner, I also want to thank the Economic Freedom Fighters for their continued robust interaction with our government as we jointly work to ensure a better life for all our residents.

30 Nov 21:39
Mashaba: I want to thank all our coalition partners for their continued support.

30 Nov 21:38
Mashaba: It is time for the ANC to make peace with what the people of Johannesburg voted for.

30 Nov 21:38
Mashaba: The ANC’s loss in Council today is not only a victory for the democratic will of our residents, but a victory for hard working civil servants within Johannesburg as well.

30 Nov 21:37
Mashaba: Fortunately, the City’s Council saw the ANC motion for what it was.

30 Nov 21:37
Mashaba: Truth be told, the ANC is finally feeling the pinch of not being able to loot the City for itself and its cronies. This has been the driving force behind this motion of no confidence.

30 Nov 21:36
Mashaba: This has resulted in the arrest of over 600 people, the suspension of over 100 employees, the dismissal of 7 and the resignation of 13.

30 Nov 21:35
Mashaba: Due to the ANC’s unashamed corrupt rule, this multi-party government has uncovered fraud and corruption worth just over R16.2bn. Over 2 500 matters are at various stages of investigation.
