Find Out Who The ANC Have Choosen To Replace The Late Joburg Mayor Geoff Makhubo

To replace late Joburg mayor Geoff Makhubo, the ANC Johannesburg region has nominated three people as mayoral contenders.

Following Makhubo's death last month due to Covid-19 problems, the party's regional executive committee (REC) held a meeting over the weekend to review the nomination process for candidates.

Johannesburg's finance member of the mayoral committee (MMC) Jolidee Matongo, MMC for environment, infrastructure and services Mpho Moerane, and the council's chair of chairpersons Salphina Mulaudzi are among the contenders, according to the party.

Before the city's council seats to pick a new mayor, the names are expected to be forwarded to the Gauteng provincial executive committee (PEC) and the ANC's national executive committee (NEC) for approval.

On Monday, ANC regional spokeswoman Sasabona Manganye said the REC meeting emphasized the need of maintaining the party's unity and rejuvenation during this period.

“As a result of this unity and rebirth, trustworthy leadership for the people of Johannesburg is also required. The administration's leadership will not compromise on the delivery of services to the people of Johannesburg.

Manganye stated in a statement that the meeting on August 2, 2021 resolved to recommend the three names of nominees to the PEC [provincial executive committee].

He stated that the REC has faith in the three candidates for mayor. The REC trusts in the combined wisdom of the three candidates, as much as it prefers the first choice, Matongo.

“To this end, the ANC urges on its members and the people of Johannesburg to support whichever candidate the NEC chooses from the three names submitted to the PEC, and to shun divisive tendencies in favor of serving the people of Johannesburg.”
