Gwen Ngwenya lambastes Herman Mashaba over new mayor comments

The DA’s former head of policy, Gwen Ngwenya, has lambasted former Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba for his statement, after the election of the ANC’s Geoff Makhubo as his replacement.

Gwen Ngwenya slammed Herman Mashaba for his recent comments about new Joburg mayor Geoff Makhubo.

In his statement, Mashaba said the election of an allegedly corrupt Makhubo, reportedly voted in by some DA councillors rather than their own candidates, “demonstrates why” he had to resign from the party.

“The DA of today is clearly not the DA that I joined — not when they support an allegedly corrupt person,” Mashaba said.

Ngwenya hit back at Mashaba on Twitter, saying his statement was rich, especially coming from a “man who grew cosy with VBS looters”.
