Johannesburg's new mayor-elect, Dada Morero, will be sworn in on Saturday.

This after the ANC successfully took back control of the city, with the assistance of smaller parties.

Morero was voted in to replace outgoing executive mayor Mpho Phalatse.

He said there were two things he would need to do immediately - to fix the city's finances and sort out the electricity crisis.
