- At a press conference, Herman Mashaba roasted Cyril Ramaphosa
- He said that anyone who voted for Ramaphosa would regret it
- Mashaba also said that the president was dishonest
Johannesburg mayor, Herman Mashaba, has said that voters who cast their ballot for Cyril Ramaphosa in this year's election will be asking for Jacob Zuma to come back in 18 months.
Mashaba made the remarks while briefing the media at Constitutional Hill in Braamfontein.
At the briefing, both Mashaba and DA leader, Mmusi Maimane, blamed the ANC for promoting the violent protests in areas like Alexandra.
Mashaba said that these service delivery protests - which have turned violent in several cases - were "ANC-sponsored".
The mayor also went on to claim once again that the R1 billion that had been set aside for renewal of township infrastructure in Alexandra and elsewhere had been looted by the ANC.
Additionally, Mashaba slammed Cyril Ramaphosa as a dishonest leader, and said that another five years of ANC leadershio could be worse than the Zuma years, according to The Sowetan.
He said South Africans should not make the mistake of trusting Ramaphosa, whom he called a "charmer". He compared Ramaphosa unfavourable to Zuma, saying that at least Zuma was open about stealing people's money.
Mashaba also blasted national government for not doing enough to curb illegal immigration. He even suggested that government was helping illegal immigrants obtain fraudulent identity documents, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
