DA supports the decision by Mayor Msimanga to suspend City Manager

by John Moodey – DA Gauteng Provincial Leader

The Democratic Alliance (DA) notes today’s press conference held by Tshwane Executive Mayor, Solly Msimanga, during which he announced his recommendation for the suspension of the City Manager, Moeketsi Masola.

The City Manager is facing allegations of misconduct.

These actions by the City Manager has had a negative impact on the delivery of services to the residents of Tshwane.

When the DA took over the Tshwane administration from the failing ANC we inherited a R2 billion deficit.

At the end of our first financial year in office in 2017 we were able to correct this and we now have a surplus.

We have created 16 125 employment opportunities for unemployed residents of Tshwane.

The residents of Tshwane under the DA administration are now experiencing real service delivery and we will not allow the City Manager to derail the progress that we have made.

We call on all political parties in the City of Tshwane to do the right thing and act in the interest of the residents of Tshwane by supporting the Mayor’s recommendation in Council tomorrow to suspend the City Manager.

The residents of Tshwane must come first.
