IFP congratulates new Mayor of City of Johannesburg

The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) in Gauteng congratulates the newly-appointed Mayor of the City of Johannesburg, the Hon. Jolidee Matongo.

We welcome this appointment and trust that the Hon. Matongo will uphold the highest standards of public office, as well as be an ambassador for the City of Johannesburg.

The new Mayor was part of the administration led by former Mayor Geoff Makhubo, who died from Covid-19-related complications last month. We are therefore confident that he will step in naturally and continue with the great work that the Honourable Makhubo had started.

We wish him everything of the best and pledge our support to his administration, as part of the Government of Local Unity (GLU).

We further take this opportunity to congratulate MMC Mlungisi Mabaso and MMC Nonhlanhla Makhuba on their reappointments, as the City of Johannesburg’s MMCs of Housing and Transport, respectively. We are confident that the pair will continue to contribute towards an enhanced quality of life for all residents of the City.
