ANC critical of Joburg mayor's first 94 days in office
The ANC says that Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba has spent his first 94 days in office grandstanding.
JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) in Johannesburg says Mayor Herman Mashaba is so fixated on exposing the party's alleged corruption that he's neglecting the needs of the city's residents.
The ANC held a briefing in Johannesburg on Tuesday, where it reflected on the first 94 days of the Democratic Alliance (DA) government in the metro.
The ANC’s Geofrey Makhubo says Mashaba has spent his first 94 days in office grandstanding.
The ANC’s regional secretary in the city, Dada Morero, says Mashaba is neglecting residents.
“He thinks that the narrative of saying the ANC government is corrupt and has done nothing to deal with corruption ... that is all he wants to drive. The facts are telling him a different story, so he won’t be able to sustain that narrative.”
At the same time, the DA says the ANC briefing shows the party is battling to come to terms with its loss of power in the metro.
