Following the ouster of Mpho Phalatse, ANC’s Dada Morero has been elected as the City of Johannesburg’s new Mayor.
This development comes Today’s after weeks of turbulence in which the DA’s Vasco da Gama was voted out as speaker of the Johannesburg council.
A new speaker Colleen Makhubele of Cope was appointed. Makhubele called a special sitting of council for today, just days after being elected.
Mpho Phalatse was voted out as City of Johannesburg mayor in a motion of no-confidence this afternoon.
139 voted to pass the motion out of the 145 councillors who signed the register.
The IFP, and a member of the DA-led coalition abstained. This happened whilst the DA was in the High Court seeking an urgent interdict against the meeting.
ANC’s nominated Morero and he stood unopposed.
