Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba says the R18 billion worth of fraud and corruption cases under investigation has slowed down the city's progress.
Mashaba delivered his State of the City address on Thursday.

The mayor highlighted that if it weren't for the R18 billion worth of fraud and corruption cases under investigation, perhaps some of the funds that he needs to run his office would be available.— Katleho Sekhoto, EWN reporter
Painting a picture, he said 78% of the City's 900 bridges classified as poor or in bad condition, R6.4 billion is needed to fix these. Another R17 billion is needed to address the electricity problem. He says on the current housing list, the number stands at almost 152 000 people who need housing.— Katleho Sekhoto, EWN reporter
