Mashaba says ANC is plotting a 'no-confidence' motion against him

- | 3 months ago

Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba on Thursday said he has found out that the African National Congress (ANC) intends to table a motion of no-confidence in his mayorship… Mashaba said he made “this shocking discovery” through a march to the city “orchestrated by the ANC-aligned wing of SANCO [South African National Civic Organisation]”.

The mayor said ANC Councillors in Johannesburg also took part in the march. “The march was attended by ANC top brass such as Geoff Makhubo, current ANC Johannesburg region chairperson, who allegedly also confirmed this to their followers,” said Mashaba, who is a member of the Democratic Alliance, which runs the City with the support of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

However, Mashaba said earlier this week he met with “true representatives” of SANCO, who distanced themselves from the ANC’s political ploy to unseat him as mayor.
