Joburg mayor “Herman Mashaba” not mincing words over housing for locals

JOHANNESBURG – Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba is not mincing his words about only providing housing to South Africans.

Mashaba has on several occasions spoken about refusing to use the city’s resources to house foreign nationals.

The Constitution gives everyone on South African soil the right to adequate housing.

“When I provide temporary accommodation, I will provide exclusively for South Africans,” said Mashaba.

“I am not going to allow anyone to jump the line.”

Mashaba also said that several officials have been looting the city’s coffers.

He said more arrests are expected soon.

“These are the people who support corruption in the city, people who are involved in corruption and unfortunately under our watch,” he said.
