Mayor not impressed with the newly built state of the art council chambers
The executive Mayor of Johannesburg, Herman Mashaba is not convinced that building a new council chamber at a cost of R360 million by the previous ANC led administration was a good dea.
Speaking during the state of the city address in Braamfontein, He said, “ Noting these serious challenges I stand before you in amazement of this new Council Chamber. This R360 million Council Chamber. It truly is a spectacular building, however, I am left thinking about all of the roads, houses and clinics that could have been built with this money.”
Mashaba also told the packed chamber that It is going to take time to turn around the years of neglect, incorrect priorities, decay and mismanagement in the City.
He assured the city residents that change is inevitable.”While asking our residents for their patience, I wish to assure our residents that change is on the way. Day by day we are taking steps towards delivering change to all our residents. Day by day we are making progress towards creating a more inclusive and prosperous Johannesburg,” Mashaba pointed.
