Is honeymoon over for DA-led minority coalition government in Joburg?
As Joburg mayor Herman Mashaba faces a motion of no confidence in the city council, the EFF’s commitment to its own promises is in the spotlight
Thursday will mark three years since Joburg mayor Herman Mashaba was elected to run SA’s biggest-budget municipality — a day when he was jubilantly hoisted on the shoulders of DA members after a marathon meeting of the party caucus. It is also the day on which he will face his second ANC-sponsored motion of no confidence since he took office.
Three years in, the honeymoon of the DA-led minority coalition government in Joburg would seem to be over.
