[LISTEN] Dr Dagada gets sacked as MMC for Finance

City of Joburg Media Specialist Luyanda Mfeka chats to #AfternoonDrive presenter Stephen Grootes about the Mayors decision to remove Dr Dagada from his position.

Mfeka says that when the issue came about in October, any government would be quite serious in dealing with issues of corruption. He adds that Dr Dagada was given a chance to respond to the report, and under the content of the report, the mayor took the step to remove Dr Dagada from his position.

From the position of the mayoral committee, I would believe that there is no space for the MMC to come back.

Mfeka adds that a newly appointed MMC has been placed for the Finance Portfolio, and he adds that a MMC has been appointed for Developmental Planning as well.

In terms of the way the party reacts, that’s up to their processes in terms of whether or not they deem it fit to revoke the MMC says Mfeka.
