Herman Mashaba talks Joburg service delivery and debates coalition politics

DA (Democratic Alliance) mayoral candidate, Herman Mashaba, said City of Joburg's upgrade from Moody's ratings agency is not changing the lives of residents.

702/Cape Talk's #FridayStandIn, Richard Calland, spoke to the official oppositions's mayoral candidate, Herman Mashaba, about the issue.

Then, the discussion turned to coalition politics, and a debate on the upcoming municipal elections.

Listen to the interview below:

Unfortunately, what Mr [Parks] Tau is doing is destroying this beautiful city of ours. The ratings agency is looking at the health of the balance sheet and not on what he's doing for the residents.

Herman Mashaba, DA mayoral candidate

People of Alexandra need water, electricity and basic infrastructure. Some of the people in Soweto don't have roads to access their homes. These are the issues.

Herman Mashaba, DA mayoral candidate

It would be premature to talk about a coalition at such an early stage of the game. We have about 76 days from the voting day.

Herman Mashaba, DA mayoral candidate

Mashaba declined to divulge any plans for the DA to enter into a coalition with any other opposition party.

I'm on the ground everyday, and the voters of Johannesburg are saying that they are giving us an outright majority.

Herman Mashaba, DA mayoral candidate

This elections aren't really about Johannesburg, it's about saving peoples' lives.
