Callers on the McKaiser show say the mayor has lost control of the City of Johannesburg and the EFF is in charge.

Chaos erupted last week in Marlboro Gardens, Alexandra when illegal structures were demolished and left many people homeless.

Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba says the instruction didn't come from his office.

Callers on the open line accused Mashaba of lying about his knowledge of the demolitions.

These houses are built on the banks of the Jukskei River. It is not that people wanted those people out, it is a safety risk. People have dumped rubble on the river to narrow it so they can build houses.

Ahmed, Caller

Kenny says the mayor has lost control of the city.

The mayor is not in charge, but the EFF is running the city behind his back. He is being dishonest. The DA must look into the mayor matter urgently. He is a danger to the community.

Kenny, Caller

READ: 'The instruction to demolish didn't come from my office, it came from JMPD'

Rafiq says he works in the evictions industry and knows the procedures need to carry out such demolishes.

Herman Mashaba is a liar. For the Red Ants to go out and do that job, they need their money upfront. There is no way that would have cost them under R300,000 for the Red Ants to do the job. The Saps doesn't go in without the proper paperwork. Herman Mashaba was well-aware and he comes out with his rotten lies.

Rafiq, Caller

ALSO: EFF wants Ipid, Public Protector and SAHRC to probe Alexandra demolitions

The mayor is an amazing liar and a big hypocrite.

Farouk, Caller

Gustos argues that ANC is sabotaging Mashaba.

The fact that Mashaba is working with the EFF is a good thing. The court order was issued by the ANC two years ago.

Gustos, Caller

Ziyanda complains about people relocated from Alexandra.

We are struggling with shebeens that are playing music 24/7. We are even receiving threats when we complain.

Ziyanda, Caller

A resident of Alexandra, Collen, says the DA-EFF marriage is causing chaos in the township.

EFF guys are a bad influence. People must just rise up.

Collen, Caller
