African National Congress Greater Johannesburg region leader Geoff Makhubo was elected Joburg mayor on Wednesday.

Democratic Alliance leader Gauteng leader John Moody says the likelihood that three of its councillors voted in favour of the African National Congress (ANC) Greater Johannesburg region leader Geoff Makhubo as Joburg mayor is disappointing and that he would have thought members would be more disciplined and committed to the party.

Makhubo was voted in as the city's mayor on Tuesday with 137 votes.

This follows the resignation of Herman Mashaba.

We are calling a caucus right now and that is a great disappointment to us but at the end of the day it is a secret ballot.

John Moody, DA Gauteng leader

I would have thought our people would be more disciplined and committed to the DA cause.

Meanwhile, the EFF Gauteng chairperson Mandisa Mashego says a democratic outcome must be accepted but Makhubo is a highly compromised individual considering existing allegations of corruption against him.

The problem with having a conflicted mayor is that you don't know what will happen to the money of the council but of course we have no choice but to note and accept the outcome.

The only thing that we are wary of is a non reversal of all the gains we have made for all the poor communities.

Meanwhile, Susan Comrie of amaBhungane says a probe initiated by former mayor Herman Mashaba into how Makhubo’s firm, Molelwane Consulting, was given a 10% cut of a controversial contract Regiments received to manage the city’s fund, is still continuing.
