JOHANNESBURG - Joburg mayor Herman Mashaba has accused his predecessor Parks Tau of spending money on creating a false image of the city.

Mashaba has availed a report which details the true state of infrastructure development in Johannesburg.

Mashaba says 27% of the city's electricity infrastructure has reached its lifespan.

He says these are problems his administration cannot resolve overnight.

“I shared with residents plans on how I intend to address this, but I can only attend to R170 billion infrastructure backlog.”
