‘You couldn’t run a bath, let alone a municipality’

It began when the Electoral Commission (IEC) precluded ActionSA's name and just utilized its logo on voting form papers. 

The commission faulted ActionSA for its name not showing up on the polling form, saying the party didn't pick a condensing when it enrolled with the IEC

It said it would not change its last draft voting form papers to add ActionSA's name close to its logo for the November 1 neighborhood government races, regardless of the party undermining lawful activity. 

Showing up with regards to the choice, Manyi said ActionSA can't be trusted to carry out ordinances of districts since it neglected to "fill in a structure appropriately". 

"In the event that ActionSA can't fill in a structure appropriately, for what reason would it be advisable for it to be trusted to carry out the standing rules of districts? Assuming you needed the IEC to place your name in full, you ought to have placed your name in full as opposed to saying N/A. The IEC isn't your guide," he said. 

Responding, Mashaba addressed the number of local laws Manyi had carried out in his life as a lawmaker. 

"ANN7 promulgation doesn't count," Mashaba said. 

"You were unable to run a shower, not to mention a whole region." 

In a conflict of words, Manyi recommended Mashaba fizzled as Johannesburg civic chairman, saying he was busying "modeling for pictures". 

"The mishap that dropped you to be a city hall leader won't occur once more. [The] city of Johannesburg is a wreck as a result of you," said Manyi. 

"Rather than utilizing capable individuals to clean the roads, you were occupied with a brush yourself, posturing for pictures." 

In a different post, Mashaba made fun of lawmakers who have "chest torments" and "can't keep ActionSA out of their mouths". 

"Surprising to figure a one-year-old ideological group can occupy such a lot of room in these individuals' brains. Allow them to talk. We are winning hearts and brains on the ground," said Mashaba. 

Last year, Mashaba hammered Manyi for considering him a "liar" in light of the IEC's choice not to enlist ActionSA as an ideological group. 

"This is actually why individuals don't confide in lawmakers. For what reason would Mashaba lie like this? Governmental issues ought to be about honor, not controlling individuals. I feel frustrated about the people who trust him," Manyi composed on Twitter at that point.
