DA To Expose Major Financial Failings By The City of Joburg

Tomorrow, Thursday 14 July 2016, DA Johannesburg Mayoral Candidate, Herman Mashaba, will reveal major financial failings by the City of Johannesburg.

Over the past weeks, the DA has revealed how under Parks Tau’s leadership, the City of Johannesburg has splurged millions of Rand worth of tax-payers’ money on self-praise and electioneering for the ANC.

Parks Tau has tried to position himself as the Mayor who has overseen excellent financial records and stability in the City, however this is a blatant distortion of the truth.

Under a DA-governed City of Johannesburg, the peoples’ money will be used sensibly to stimulate economic growth and job creation and ensure improved service delivery to all residents.

The DA is set on winning Johannesburg in this year’s elections so that it can bring change that moves the City forward.

Mashaba will be joined by the DA Chief Whip in the Gauteng Legislature, Mike Moriarty MPL, and DA Caucus Leader in the City of Johannesburg, Cllr Vasco da Gama.

The media briefing will take place as follows:

Date: Thursday 14 July 2016

Time: 10h00

Place: Elm Room, Johannesburg Country Club, 1 Napier Road, Auckland Park.

There will be ample opportunity for interviews and photographs. Members of media are welcome to attend.
