ANC calls for "fresh elections" in Tshwane, Joburg and Nelson Mandela Bay

The ANC is calling for fresh elections in Tshwane that will see Mayor of Tshwane Solly Msimanga ousted.

MMC of Finance at City Of Joburg, Geoffrey Makhubo says the DA's instability is the reason why they are calling for fresh elections. He says the unprincipled coalition is a concern, 'where people agree today and don't agree tomorrow.'

He says people are suffering in Tshwane and in Gauteng due to lack of service delivery because there is more focus on keeping the coalition together than delivering services to the people.

It is better for all of us to say that let's go hand-test the will of the people because no one got an outright majority in all these metros to govern and everyone must accept what the results are because service delivery is suffering.

We also feel that there are a lot of people who are employed who are underqualified and incompetent in all three metros and that is not good for service delivery.

Makhubo has denied accusations by the DA that this call for fresh elections is an indication of the ANC playing politics.

No, we are putting facts on the table and these are facts they cannot deny that service delivery has suffered and there is an inability to spend, and the financials are in shambles in Gauteng.
