While the ANC drums up support and attempts to rally City of Johannesburg residents around the idea that Herman Mashaba is not good enough to continue as mayor, many believe it’s a futile exercise and won’t bear the desired fruits.
The ANC in South Africa’s economic hub has tabled a motion of no confidence against Mashaba, which is expected to be heard on Thursday.
The motion will also apply to council speaker Vasco Da Gama and the chief whip of the DA’s caucus, Kevin Wax.

The DA in Gauteng has come out in support of “strong and capable leader” Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba, who faces a Gauteng ANC-sponsored motion of no confidence on August 22.

This, after it was reported last week that the council’s programming committee had accepted the ANC’s request to table the motion of no confidence on Thursday next week.
