ANC has until Friday to pay City of Joburg R300 000

City of Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba says the ANC has until Friday to pay the City R300 000.

The ANC last year brought a motion of no confidence on Mashaba and lost the case at the high court with costs.

Mashaba says he does not want to attach anything on the court order he obtained, he wants the R300 000 as cash.

It's been 8-9 months they are unable to pay us R300 000.

Fortunately, I have a court order by Friday if they are unable to pay the R300 000 we will have to attach anything and it's got to be to the value of R300 000.

Mashaba says it came to his attention on Thursday night that Denel owes the City R290 million.

Minister Pravin Gordhan and I had a discussion on Thursday, requesting that I give them an extension because Denel, unfortunately, is not going to meet their obligation.

It would not have been fair for me to liquidate them because we could have triggered other situations for the country.
