If I have not heard the elected mayor talking by himself in this video on etv news channel, I would have not believed the report, but he he said it himself, from his own words. As he was accepting the position of serving as a mayor of Johannesburg, he said "I Jolidee Matongo, the son of Edward Matongo, who is a migraine from Zimbabwe, accept the position of a mayor.
This is what he said, this is a proof that the mayor of Johannesburg is of Zimbabwean origin. I don't know whether this is one of the mistakes that the politicians are going to use against the president Cyril Ramaphosa or not, but at the end of the day, if he has a South African Id, he is also a citizen who deserves political opportunities
By News24 | Jolidee Matongo has been elected unopposed as new executive mayor of the City of Johannesburg, the metro announced on Tuesday
