DA Mayor Ms Tania Campbell Voted Out

J Tshabalala

While we await the vote to democratically vote out the Democratic Alliance (DA) Mayor of Johannesburg Dr Phalatse, Ms Tania Campbell, was voted out through a motion of no confidence in the City of Ekurhuleni on Wednesday, 26 October 2022.

The communities in Ekurhuleni are feeling the pinch of insensitive tariffs and many have bemoaned the general sentiment that the situation is dire regarding the overall state of service delivery in the city. Governing through a coalition, there were complaints that the DA appointed Mayor had delayed the appointment of the Mayoral Committee and her handling of the Tembisa protests over electricity tariff hikes was ineffectual. She has also neglected townships during her tenure.

We welcome the change as the DA has been unsuccessful in shedding its racist veneer wherever it governs. Just recently, utterances made by Ms Helen Zille have inadvertently shown what they really think of Black people in this country. 

The people of South Africa know that the DA exists to preserve the privileges of the past and the poor and vulnerable are low on their list of priorities.
