David Tembe is the new Chief of Police at the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department.
Johannesburg mayor, Herman Mashaba, says that he will be taking the Department of Home Affairs to court over its tardiness in issuing foreign nationals papers.
The City of Johannesburg has said that it will lay criminal charges against councillors representing the African National Congress for disrupting a community meeting on Tuesday evening.
Alex, as it is more affectionately known, was one of the major campaign issues when Herman Mashaba was running for Mayor of Johannesburg. During his first few months in office the enormity of the task that lies ahead has become increasingly apparent.
The Gauteng province experienced heavy rainfall during the past weekend, which even led to a series of flash floods in some regions. However, that has not been enough to alter government’s position on water saving measures.
City officials have met with residents of Tshepisong and Matholeville near Roodepoort, to raise awareness about the impact illegal mining operations are having on water supplies.
A news report has claimed that the Harties Dam would reach high levels of pollution in a few years’ time if nothing is done urgently to mitigate this.
Dr Ndivhoniswani Lukhwareni has been appointed as the new city manager for Johannesburg.
Who is Herman Mashaba and where has he been? Mashaba has been an entrepreneur since the 1980s and only joined politics last year in December, when he announced that he will be running for the mayoral position with the Democratic Alliance.
Mashaba, who has a strong business background, told Johannesburg residents that the current nature of the tender system had contributed significantly to the lack of service delivery in that city, and in that province.
