The ANC says the coalition in these metros is not working and service delivery is suffering.

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

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.

Geoffrey Makhubo, MMC of Finance at City Of Joburg

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.
