The City of Tshwane’s first citizen, Solly Msimanga, will on Friday announce a decision to step down as mayor.

According to News24, the Democratic Alliance Gauteng premier candidate’s tenure will end in February, after which he will commit more time to his campaign for the provincial office. It is expected that the speaker of council, Katlego Mathebe, will take over from Msimanga as mayor.

Msimanga took over as mayor in 2016 through a coalition government after the municipal elections that did not produce an outright victor in the City.
