ANC councillors confident ahead of vote of no confidence in Mashaba

ANC councillors are in a jubilant mood ahead of the Johannesburg council meeting where a vote of no confidence on mayor Herman Mashaba is to be decided on Thursday.

Some councillors dressed in ANC green, black and gold sang Struggle songs as they walked to the chambers in Braamfontein.

The ANC has put forward a motion of no confidence in Mashaba, accusing him of messing up the city's finances.

Mashaba has previously survived two motions of no confidence. However, on Thursday it will be the first time the motion is placed before council with the marriage between the DA and EFF on the rocks.

ANC councillors are always confident... its never a sign of whether they will get what they want or not.

if mashaba is defeated, anc & eff have no conscience. If mashaba wins, it shows hard work always pays.

Mashaba must be stopped at all costs. He is delivering on the promises of the ANC which is extremely counter-revolutionary:
Johannesburg – After 50 years of living in the dark, Heaven Valley residents can see the light after City of Joburg electrified the area, ending rampant and dangerous illegal connections.

The City electrified the area on Tuesday, a few month after Mayor Herman Mashaba made the promise to the community.

The residents said their lives have changed for the better because Mashaba kept his ‘short-term' promise and electrified their area after about 50 years living with no lights.

50 years? Where is this Heaven Valley?
Yup...1969 was just yesterday. Man landed on the moon that year. Electricity had been generated, transmitted and supplied in JHB for around 70years already believe it or not.... and a whole lot of people obviously didn't get any

ANC withdraws motion of no confidence.

Idiots.
Most likely ....EFF got some sort of concession from the DA ....and pulled their support for the motion....at the last minute.... Happened before , will happen again... DA so desperate to remain in power...just wondering what the EFF will be getting ... but don't worry, will happen again and another concession will be made.

I think DA appealed to EFF's conscience and won this. Change my mind.
