The DA assumed control over the reins in Johannesburg, Tshwane and Ekurhuleni with the assistance of ActionSA and the Economic Freedom Fighters that intentionally chose to decide in favor of the DA city hall leaders and speakers.

"It is unwise and financially reckless to hold what is unmistakably a Special Council Meeting, at incredible cost to the inhabitant, for the sole of direction of the conveyance of a discourse. This is particularly so considering the way that there is one more Council meeting booked for 09 December 2021, precisely multi week after the fact," Mashaba. 

He had kept in touch with Da Gama grumbling with regards to the misuse of scant public assets and that "us political pioneers should display appropriate monetary administration. "We should guarantee that we use the restricted public assets accessible in the most proficient way. The period of wastage is finished," Mashaba said 

"As open pioneers, we can't anticipate that residents should hold on for government as it battles to convey benefits because of restricted assets, however at that point pivot and waste those equivalent restricted assets at the primary chance. ActionSA won't permit it," he said. 

As indicated by Mashaba, the committee concurred at its debut meeting to hold over the discourse to its next gathering. This was expected to councilors expecting to leave the debut meeting scene fortuitously to not fall foul of the approaching time limit the evening of the Mayor's political decision. 

"No sensible individual would have deciphered that consent to recommend that a Special Meeting should be called. There is no squeezing need for the discourse to be conveyed at a costly exceptional gathering.," Mashaba said. 

This is the principal oversight obligation for the new party, which Mashaba framed after he left the DA toward the end of last year in fight at the political decision for Helen Zille as party government gathering seat. Mashaba likewise become undesirable with the party which protested his cozy relationship with the EFF during his mayoral term blaming him for being controlled by the Red Berets.
