Gauteng Cooperative Governance MEC, Paul Mashatile, has actively tried to destabilise the DA-led coalition government in Mogale City.

Makashule Gana, DA Gauteng Spokesperson on Cooperative Governance, said in a media statement that since the 2016 Local Government Elections, the ANC in Mogale City and the West Rand District has tried to topple the DA in council.

“On command of the ANC, MEC Mashatile … intervened with the reinstatement of the council Speaker and Chief Whip. He has since responded to calls by the acting municipal manager to place the municipality under administration.

“The DA-led coalition government of Mogale City is making progress to turn around the dysfunctional municipality despite the efforts of the ANC in the region to destabilise the council as they are reluctant to accept the democratic will of the people.

“The frivolous motion of ‘no confidence’ recently put on the council agenda against DA Executive Mayor, Michael Holenstein, is simply one of the many tactics tried by the ANC in the region to shake up the coalition.

“The failure to accept defeat has seen the ANC become more radical in their approach to take back Mogale City. In the interest of the residents, the coalition government will do whatever they can to prevent the former government from regaining what they democratically lost in August 2016,” Gana’s statement reads.

Since taking office, the DA has had a vision to implement measures through the Integrated Development Plan that is geared towards the future development of the city. This will see more jobs, better service delivery and a responsive local government in Mogale City.

“The DA is moving forward, despite the ANC’s attempts to undermine constitutional democracy.”
