The ANC-EFF coalition of doom deliberately collapsed a City of Johannesburg Council programming committee meeting this morning where ActionSA’s motion of no confidence (MONC) in Mayor Thapelo Amad was set to be tabled when they failed to attend the meeting.
As such ActionSA will seek legal recourse to ensure that the city is not stolen and that the will of the Johannesburg people prevails.
The move is another desperate attempt by the ANC-EFF coalition of doom to cling to power as they know they do not have the numbers to defeat the MONC in their mayor Amad in council.
They know that they have embarrassed the residents of Johannesburg by electing Mayor Amad, and are now attempting to protect themselves from embarrassment by facing a MONC.
ActionSA, a party committed to the rule of law and good governance, will not allow the ANC-EFF coalition to get away with this undemocratic attempt to stay in power, and will pursue all means – including heading to the courts – to ensure the city’s executive is held accountable.
Mayor Amad has failed to implement the city’s policies such as the informal trading policy while service delivery continued to decline. Mayor Amad’s EFF-ANC coalition also voted against an ActionSA motion to remove bucket toilets in the city, leaving our most marginalised residents worse off.
The residents of Johannesburg have suffered long enough from the ANC-EFF and Premier Panyaza Lesufi’s back-door dealings to gain access to the City’s coffers, and ActionSA will not allow them to get away with it.
