Ekurhuleni mayor, Mzwandile Masina, has survived a motion of no confidence.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) had tabled the motion because it says Masina has failed the city’s residents.
Gauteng Premier David Makhura says Masina survived a motion of no confidence because the African National Congress (ANC) is committed to the delivery of basic services.
Earlier, both the DA and ANC supporters were confident that their parties would emerge victorious after the motion.
