guess taking the majority away from the ANC is worth the effort, of dealing with the devilAre the DA achieving anything by staying in the EFF's pocket? There must some long game in it for them if they are willing to give so much to the EFF in return for retaining the city.
A good reputation, if local elections were to be called tomorrow without any campaigning, the DA would win, they are seriously doing a good job in JHB and their relationship with the EFF is no hindrance.Are the DA achieving anything by staying in the EFF's pocket?

The ruling party fails to win five vital Inkatha Freedom Party votes to oust Mashaba as it refuses to join the no-confidence vote, ‘despite his arrogant leadership style’.
Joburg mayor Herman Mashaba’s survival yesterday was seen by some as a vote of confidence in his crusade against corruption, after the ANC was forced to withdraw its no-confidence motion against him to avoid an embarrassing defeat.
The ANC failed to lobby the five Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) members to vote with them to oust Mashaba and abandoned the motion when it smelt imminent embarrassment.
Had the ANC secured the IFP votes it would have been able to oust the mayor, according to Al Jama-ah councillor and chief whip Thapelo Amad.
He can't take names there without losing the IFP and therefore the city. So he's letting **** slide in return to retaining the city.Mashaba was implicit in the corruption taking place at JRA, where an official has been suspended, only after the Carte Blanche expose.
Not once did he attempt to do his own enquiry regarding the delay in fixing one of the most important roads in SA.
Devi Sankaree had to do it.
