Joburg council to vote in bid to remove Mashaba

Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba and the council's speaker Vasco da Gama will face a motion of no confidence on Wednesday tabled by the African National Congress.

The ANC has been critical of Mashaba's leadership abilities since he took over in 2016.

Stephen Grootes spoke to ANC regional treasurer in Johannesburg, Geoff Makhubo on the Breakfast Show.

From the reports we see our city is tethering on the brink of bankruptcy and Mayor Mashaba and his team are in denial. If we leave things the same our city will be no more in a few months.

Geoff Makhubo, ANC regional treasurer in Johannesburg

The council collapses every-time, he doesn't give the ANC a fair chance. We think he [da Gama] is not fit to be a speaker of council.
