City of Tshwane placed under administration

The Gauteng provincial government has placed the City of Tshwane under administration.

Gauteng Human Settlements and Co-operative Governance MEC Lebogang Maile made the announcement on Friday, citing administrative and service delivery challenges.

Two motions of no-confidence on Thursday resulted in both Tshwane council speaker Katlego Mathebe and mayor Stevens Mokgalapa being removed from their positions.

Clement Manyathela speaks to Maile about the decision.

They have not been performing properly for the last two years and this includes issues of financial mismanagement, corruption, tender irregularities and service delivery.
