The Democratic Alliance’s (DA)  Johannesburg mayoral candidate, Mpho Phalatse, has vowed to accelerate the delivery of basic services across the city.

She was speaking while on the campaign trail in the city, ahead of the upcoming local government elections.

Phalatse, a qualified medical doctor, also served in the city as a member of the Mayoral Committee for Health and Social Development.


She says her administration has already targeted a number of areas they plan to focus on.

“My administration will work with the city’s officials and entities to provide the following:  access to clean drinking water for all residents, water leaks fixed within 24-hours, potholes filled within 72-hours, a vast reduction in electricity outages, more recycling in collaboration with reclaimers and clean streets,” says Phalatse.
