JOHANNESBURG – The Johannesburg Social Movement says the city’s Mayor Herman Mashaba must step down because of the many decisions he’s making without consulting residents in the process.
The movement which consists of a number of NGOs, businesses and co-operative forums, says they are unhappy with the scrapping of the Jozi@Work programme which they say will leave 8,000 people without work.
The forum held a meeting on Sunday and was attended by Jozi@Work employees and community coordinators and are planning to hold a march on 23 February.
The movement’s Tshepang Mokgatla says they have requested to see the mayor.
“Before they cut programmes, they’ll come with a proper alternative and so we’re saying the antagonistic posture is actually losing what being a mayor is.”
