Withdrawal of motions of no confidence against Joburg Mayor: Prof. Alex van den Heever

Johannesburg Mayor Dr Mpho Phalatse remains at the helm.. for now.
Two motions of no confidence against her were withdrawn on Thursday.
The motions were brought by minority parties, citing poor service delivery and financial mismanagement. This was the third time that motions were brought against Phalatse. In September she was ousted as mayor but was reinstated after the high court in Johannesburg ruled that her removal had been unlawful.

Governance expert Professor Alex van den Heever holds the Chair in the field of Social Security Systems Administration and Management Studies at the Wits School of Governance. He joins us now via Zoom.
