ANC officials say preparations for the election of the new City of Johannesburg mayor, following the death of Mayor Geoff Makhubo from COVID-19 related complications, are well under way.
Three names of the potential candidates have been selected by the ANC in Gauteng, working with Johannesburg’s regional structure of the party.
The three are Jolly Matongo, Mpho Moerane and Salphina Mulaudzi. The three are being interrogated by the ANC top six officials, which will be followed by interviews.
ANC regional secretary, Dada Morero says the interviews will be conducted this evening by ANC National Chairperson Gwede Mantashe and Treasurer General Paul Mashatile.
“The process of interviews is taking place this evening, so the three candidates will be interviewed, hopefully, the process will then be concluded before the end of the week. As we already have a planned council meeting for next week Tuesday,” says Morero.
