Herman Mashaba


Major of Johannesburg, Herman Mashaba has resigned today and here is the full speech of the hardworking outgoing mayor.

“I joined the Democratic Alliance because I could no longer stand back and watch my country being destroyed by ANC corruption, failure and arrogance. When I was approached by the DA to stand as the Johannesburg mayoral candidate, it was out of a deep desire to save my country that I accepted this undertaking.

Part of my acceptance of this undertaking was my belief in Mmusi Maimane’s vision of one South Africa for all. I had no political aspirations at the time, and have subsequently turned down numerous requests to stand for leadership positions in the DA. My decision to stand as a mayoral candidate was not motivated by the desire to hold political office, but out of a desire to serve the residents of Johannesburg and to get our city working again. This is why I have always said, “When Johannesburg Works, South Africa Works”.
