- Herman Mashaba is happy that Mayor of Johannesburg Geoff Makhubo is under investigation by the SAPS
- Mashaba released a press statement on behalf of his political party ActionSA sharing the news with his followers
- A few social media users commented on the statement but some were telling Mashaba not to count his chickens before they hatched
ActionSA's Herman Mashaba is pleased that the Mayor of Johannesburg Geoff Makhubo is finally after investigation. Mashaba laid a criminal charge against Makhubo and former Mayor Parks Tau for corruption.
In a press statement, Herman Mashaba revealed that his political party ActionSA launched a number of private prosecutions against those who avoid facing the consequences for taking part in crime.
Mashaba is now happy that the South African Police Service (SAPS) has decided to launch a formal investigation on Makhubo and Tau.
According to Mashaba, ActionSA is going to closely monitor the investigation to ensure that the Mayor of Johannesburg is arrested and goes to court for his alleged transgressions.
"This is the only comfort that we can offer the people of Johannesburg about their city being presided over by an individual heavily implicated as a major figure in the ANC’s organised capture of our state," said Mashaba.
A number of social media users reacted to the statement by Herman Mashaba on behalf of ActionSA:
@ItsRadebe commented: Celebrate once there's a successful prosecution. At one time we were told that Duduzane was on the run, we saw him in leg irons only to turn out that it was just nothing but political."
@VeezO07 said: "Pressure them for updates every week, or else they'll just let it sit for years."
@simaxis commented: "Good to hear but no doubt it will be another long winded investigation with appeal after appeal and commission after commission .We need special fast track courts to prosecute thieves of State."
