Mongameli Bobani is the new mayor of the Nelson Mandela Bay metropolitan, and boy has he kicked things off.

The new mayor spoke at an Integrated Development Plan (IDP) meeting at the Nangoza Jebe Hall in New Brighton.

Bobani vows to commit 100% Nelson Mandela Bay budget to townships
He did not mince his words about what he and his team would handle the municipality’s budget. Even scarier is the plans he had for more affluent areas in the metro.

Sowetan Live reported that

The new political leadership in Nelson Mandela Bay will channel the entire budget for the next financial year to its townships and northern areas.
Should residents in more affluent areas report a sewerage problem‚ head of infrastructure and engineering Andile Lungisa will be told to ignore it.​

I think this is the first time we'll see a tax revolt case tested in SA, at least that I can remember. Gonna be interesting times.

Bobani‚ who was caught on camera making the statement on Thursday‚ backtracked somewhat on Friday‚ saying he had been speaking figuratively and not literally. However‚ he had made no bones at the meeting about the fact that it was time residents in more affluent areas also experienced blocked drains and sewage spills.

The "evil" of the DA candidate: he had a white skin.
The evil of the ANC/UDM/EFF candidate: denies "rich" people the right to a clean environment for political gain.

All 1.91% of it.

When the workplaces can't produce because of lack of infrastructure, doesn't matter how many numbers you have. Companies will shut and employment will dry up.

LOL, or they will simply gentrify the townships.
