Democratic Alliance (DA) caucus leader in Gauteng Solly Msimanga says the party has fielded MMC for Finance in Johannesburg Funzela Ngobeni for the mayoral position because it is important to continue the work that Herman Mashaba has done.

While the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) say they will put up their own candidate and insists it's the DA's turn to support them, Msimanga hopes they will get the consensus of the red berets to have Ngobeni take over. We are hoping that we can get the support of the EFF to continue the work that Herman Mashaba has left off.
