Mashaba: JHB wants to do away with ‘institutionalised denialism’
Mayor Herman Mashaba says his administration is working to clean up the financial mess left by the previous ANC-led government.
JOHANNESBURG - Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba says his administration wants to do away with what he calls institutionalised denialism and outright shameless looting of government entities.
The City of Johannesburg is holding its annual general meeting of the city’s entities.
Mashaba says his administration is working to clean up the financial mess left by the previous African National Congress (ANC)-led government.
“Once we’ve embraced failures of the previous government in the city over the last few years, we’ll then be free to roll up our sleeves and work together.”
He says service delivery, especially in the poor communities, is top of the agenda.
“That’s why this administration approach will focus on providing public services so as to find ways over the whole service delivery through the appropriate prioritisation of the city’s needs.”
The mayor says it's clear from the previous local elections that the people of Johannesburg want change in the city.
