“We are changing the face of Ekurhuleni (and it) is going to be the next Dubai. You will no longer have to shop in Dubai, you will be shopping here in Ekurhuleni,” he said in an interview with Newzroom Afrika.

The Citizen also reported that Mbalula had only nice words to say about Ekurhuleni Mayor Mzwandile Masina ahead of the local government elections that will be taking place in October this year.

South Africans did not believe a word of Mbalula's promises and made this known in a number of online posts which you can read below:

Briefly News also reported that Minister Fikile Mbalula recently told Parliament that he was working on fixing the Passenger Rail Agency of SA. According to Fikile he is already working on some "ambitious" projects to help the agency get back on its feet.

Mbalula also said that all those involved in crippling the ailing agency would be brought to justice after the agency received a disclaimed audit opinion for two years in a row from the Auditor General, who remarked that the agency had unreliable financial statements and a lack of financial discipline.

Meanwhile, South Africans seemingly have no faith in Mbalula's promises and have had this to say: @HadebeM2 said:

"Delusional @MbalulaFikile LYING unprovoked."
