In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Mashaba had previously indicated that he would call it quits, should what he calls the 'right wing aligned DA faction' win.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline

In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Thanks Mashaba you caused lot of chaos in Gauteng!We welcome your resignation!Thank God!
 
 
Herman Mashaba has announced his resignation as the Mayor of Johannesburg and as a member of the DA. This is a welcome development! This man's reckless, xenophobic utterances directly contributed to the deadly xenophobic attacks that engulfed Gauteng last month.

Helen Zille is a female version of Trump😂😂 this lady is no iron lady, she is a diseased racist bipolar person who is empowered by her forefront of down playing her hate for coloured People...😒😒😒
 
Now you must remove the DA in your editorial room as we know they in control at the SABC
 
An African politician actually resigning because of conflict of his principles & his version of what he deems is right / wrong. Not a fan of Herman but kudos for actually believing in something other than political office.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Wonderful news. Congradulations @CityofJoburgZA
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Hopefully Mmusi and van Damme were taking notes. The quickest way to deal with racists is to resign in bus loads
 
Noooooooooo! Why does it seem like anytime something good starts happening for the country, particularly Joburg, it is subsequently taken away? Why does it feel like we are a cursed nation? Kwaze kwanzima #HermanMashaba 🙆🏽‍♀️🙆🏽‍♀️🙆🏽‍♀️

In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
I have the utmost respect for him a true difination of leadership, unapologetic in his beliefs. Indeed a loss for the residents of joburg.

The drug dealers will be celebrating today there by Hillbrow
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Will the DA dish out dirt and say good riddance to a man who has served the community so well? Let's wait and see...
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
When are we changing the voting system konje? I wonder how Mashaba will do as an independent candidate.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
He is emotional on his speech, something really bad happened to them. Shame

In reply to @SABCNewsOnline

In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Man of principle. Imagine if some politicians had resigned en masse during the so called State Capture years!
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline

In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
I respect his leadership. His done stuff that a lot of people can not do and first of all work without corruption and try to see a better future for his people. I salute him for his effort in trying to change city of johannesburg in all types of ways. Salute Herman Mashaba.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Mashaba is never joining EFF.The guy will take a break in politics and focus on his family.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
But my question is all nominees were white what difference would make if wasn't @helenzille?I think his decision was too soon @SABCNewsOnline
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
I have super respect for ntate Mashaba A true African son of the soil. EFF is ready to welcome him with open arms. May God abundantly bless him
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
We still have leaders of note in our country, well done brother Herman Mashaba
 
All hope has bern lost

It's the official opposition and it's in the news: journalists covering the DA and the latest events can DM us for access to our database of women experts, which has several political analysts.

In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Just shows how racist he is
 
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
I Guess Mmusi MyMoney Won't Do The Same.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
This party is going down to the drain
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
There must be a law that allows independent candidate to contest for provincial and national election.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
So Mmusi and his @Our_DA opposed the employment of ordinary people by the mayor? (insourcing).
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
"i will not serve under Ramaphosa" take lessons from @HermanMashaba. But we know you wont because of politics of stomach. 😂😂😂
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
We are now waiting on @MmusiMaimane to also do the honorable thing and resign from @ParliamentofRSA
 
 
☹️☹️☹️☹️💔💔💔💔
 
A first South African Politician who kept His Words. I have to Stan

But

We lost a Progressive Mayor in Him
 
Thank you for making the @Our_DA impossible for leaders to serve in, @helenzille. Sad that one of our country’s more determined mayors @HermanMashaba feels he has to leave his post because the backwards ideology you subscribe to. Collapsing South Africa.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
De rise & fall of foreigner hater & yr political career is over.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Good riddance what a waste of energy and votes racist and afrophobic @HermanMashaba
 
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
are you next my brother ?🤷🏽‍♂️
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Never knew he was DA, I thought he was a member of ANC 😂😂😂😂 hopefully now he'll be
 
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
The Alex and Schweizer Reyneke debate is what sank the DA before elections. The racialism of matters played into the hands of the ANC, EFF and the FF+ latched onto the opportunity to sway voters away from the DA. DA has lost its way when it distanced its leaders away from voters.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Xenophobia Mayor mashaba who incited the killings of Africans has fall, shame on him
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Well done Mashaba. ANC you got one last chance to regain control of Johannesburg.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
This is very sad news.
 
 
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Piss poor decision...what about the people of Johannesburg? Oh that’s right...
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Thank you for your decisive leadership @HermanMashaba. You are a principled leader Sir, take it easy.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
They must make this guy Eskom CEO
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
this is a true leader, Zille has singlehandedly destroyed the DA
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
You what, to resign whilst people like you is the best thing to do in politics, Your works will always be admired , Don't wait to be fired, What a good example, wish all politicians learn from this. @Tau_Moyo @cassias_jays
 
 
 
 
This is major. Is there not a cause to get this popular mayor into more serious parties such as the @EFFSouthAfrica?
 
DA really lost a leader here 😭 #HermanMashaba
 
Right wing or left I don't know or mind to know. But man who put his principles ahead of anything else is LEVELS!👌
 
 
The DA black caucus is bleeding, we have long told them that this is a white mans thing and they are just being used to attract black votes. They did not see it coming now it has finally arrived. @Our_DA
 
It's always the good ones that leave but we're still stuck with the rotten eggs. Maybe this will be the final nail in the coffin of the DA?
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
I feel sorry for the people of JHB, especially if they get a thieving, corrupt cANCer cadre or EFFer in his place! 😏🤔🙄🤷🏻‍♂️
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
I understand his sentiments exactly. The hardline core that she repesents wants to mantain old white privillege and they r busy deprivibg soith africa of a viable opposition to the ANC
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
By the way, what the..... is liberalism. U dont need an ideology to practoce poltics these . Any prospective new regime already has their work cut out for them just trying to undo tge economic damage left by Zuma
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
There's too much going on in the DA, what I can tell kukrakra.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
I haven't been a fan of his policies but hates off for him , He has stood firm for what he believes in.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline

Now what? Who take over P5 billion available to be plundered.
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
I salute you Mayor. Not this gangsters we have who will stick around just to steal our hard earned cash just to buy expensive liquor, SUV’s etc. And they call themselves Comrades my foot....
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
He is a coward. What is he scared of? You're doing a great job in Johannesburg. Why resigned If you love south Africa as you claimed? #HermanMashaba
 
In reply to @SABCNewsOnline
Mashaba doesn’t have wisdom.
