The new City of Joburg Mayor Mpho Moerane hit the streets of Alexandra this weekend, a month before his term expires, to tackle service delivery complaints.
Moerane, who was the MMC for environment and infrastructure, was elected unopposed on Friday, a month before the 1 November municipal elections. He replaced former mayor Jolidee Matongo, who died in a car accident last month.
Accompanied by his team of MMCs, he headed to Alexandra where residents complained about power cuts and illegal dumping, among other issues.
Mayoral spokesperson Milly Matlou said:
the feedback indicated that only 50% of the undertakings made had been
delivered on, a timeline of next Thursday was given to officials to ensure that
all that was promised to residents at the previous oversight visit was
Moerane will conduct more oversight visits across in the city in the coming weeks.
