Herman Mashaba — like his counterpart, mayor of Tshwane Solly Msimanga — is not f*cking around when it comes to cleaning up the City of Johannesburg’s financial mess and, after a thorough investigation into how the ANC ran the city of gold, he’s taking some bold steps.

Following the new DA administrations investigation, the party said it found that, between 2008 and 2016, ANC officials in the city were responsible for 972 dodgy deals totaling R14.7 million.

Mashaba’s new administration will be laying criminals charges against 106 officials and conducting forensic audits into certain dodgy tenders with the aim of sending those ANC members responsible “directly to jail.”

“I promised to root out corruption. I am proud to say this administration is living up to that promise.”

“The days when corrupt officials would get a gentle slap on the wrist … are over. I will not rest until a clean, responsive and caring administration that puts our residents first becomes a reality in Joburg,” Mashaba said.
