Johannesburg wakes up to new mayor
South Africans woke up to news that the DA has taken control of the City of Johannesburg.
Herman Mashaba was voted into power as the new mayor of Johannesburg. Newly appointed council speaker Vasco da Gama announced the results last night.
Mashaba postponed his inaugural speech to next month when the council sits for its first meeting under his leadership.
He postponed his inaugural speech in honour of the ANC councillor Nonhlanhla Mthembu who collapsed during voting processes yesterday and later died.
Mashaba then promised to address unemployment and corruption that are causing problems in areas under the City of Johannesburg.
