Masina tells Ekurhuleni ANC will keeps election promise
Newly appointed Ekurhuleni mayor Mzwandile Masina says he is ready to deliver on ANC manifesto promises.
JOHANNESBURG - Newly appointed Ekurhuleni Mayor Mzwandile Masina says all the promises he made to the people of Ekurhuleni before the elections will be realised, and says if he fails residents must judge him.
Masina is addressing the Ekurhuleni Press Club in Germiston this evening.
He was elected mayor on Tuesday at the Ekurhuleni council meeting, were he beat the Democratic Alliance's Ghaleb Cachalia.
Masina may only be three days in the job, but he says he has already hit the ground running.
He says there are a lot of promises that the African National Congress made in its manifesto, which he is ready to deliver on.
"We have about 190 informal settlements in our area, and we committed that all of them will be electrified over the next five years. We committed to build 100,000 houses for the citizens of Ekurhuleni over the next five years- so effectively we are saying we are going to turn the City into a construction site, to be able to ensure that we give these things to our people."
Ekurhuleni's new mayor thanked residents who voted for the party, saying they won't be disappointed.
