From August 10, 2021 to September 18, 2021, Jolidee Matongo (1975–18 September 2021) served as Mayor of Johannesburg. He was on the finance mayoral committee (MMC) under his predecessor, Geoff Makhubo, who died of COVID-19 problems. Matongo was an African National Congress (ANC) member (ANC).
Matongo began his political career when he was thirteen years old. He was a member of the Soweto Student Congress and the Congress of South African Students before working as the African National Congress's regional head of communications for eight years (COSAS). Matongo worked for the city of Johannesburg's housing department before becoming the municipality's deputy director of youth development.
Johannesburg's freshly elected mayor, Jolidee Matongo, was killed in a car accident only a few months after taking office. Jolidee was picked after Makhubo died as a result of Covid-19 problems. Both guards were injured in the crash, according to reports.
On Twitter, a video clip featuring Jolidee Matongo, the late Mayor of Johannesburg, is presently trending. Matongo is in the car with the "slay queens" in the video, dancing and singing in Amapiano styles. The ‘stocko' assists with booting, and no one in the car, including Matongo, is wearing a seat belt.
The car was moving at a breakneck speed. According to Black Twitter, Matongo's actions were irresponsible and dangerous. In another video, the mayor dances with a group of inebriated women who clap and cheer for him.
The video recordings were met with diverse reactions, with some referring to Blesser as the mayor. Because ANC officials have embraced the Blesser culture since 1994, speculation is rampant. One Twitter user commented, "I was hoping things would change during Ramaphosa." But everything I've seen in the films shows a man who enjoys himself. He was unquestionably a decent young man, and everyone can have a good time if they act sensibly.
Despite the criticism Matongo received in these videos as a result of his time in the woods, numerous of his companions described him as a kind and sympathetic brother of God. Matongo will be laid to rest today. Mmapula will keep you updated on what occurs at the funeral. Keep your eyes peeled and up to date.
