Lesson: When election results don't go your way, throw a tantrum and quit! Hilarious.

In reply to @HermanMashaba
That is terrible news - you have been an amazing mayor and we will miss you desperately. How about starting a political party yourself? Even I don’t want to vote DA anymore but there are no other options
 
With all due respect, Mayor, the DA you signed up to in 2014 is the same DA, today.
Ironically, you joined the DA in May 2014 when Helen Zille was its leader & serving as a premier… you leave now as she heads the DA's federal council.

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose…
 
Herman you failed your duties as a mayor and member of the DA! By sounding like a Socialist Communist and a eff- lite on social media? And hanging with Mandela's daughter? Who made Racist remarks towards a other race group? You must Blame yourself!🤔🤐🤔! You are No victim 👎😵
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
We have lost a man of dignity and integrity.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
But the DA has never changed, it was like this when you signed up, so what is the real reason for this resignation?
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
You broke my heart sir but I understand... as a resident I had hope again for the city, now I know it's going backwards and things will get worse
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Your man of principle sir an we acknowledge that - thanks for all you did
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Thank you for your courageous governance. Sad to see you go. Joburg needs you.DA seems rudderless and has lost my vote!
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
The thing that made you a great Mayor is that you listen to the people and don't stand for corruption. This news is sad for all Joburgers!
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Is it possible for us to create a partition for Mashaba to be an independent mayor of Joburg? 🤔
 
Then leave and take your identity politics with you. You have lost it @HermanMashaba. Shame on you.

Nigerians right now💔Yhini Mayor I'm ANC member but I was supporting you 100% pic.twitter.com/DwQWCjq0NJ
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
I'll remain following you Mr Mayor... I'm with you
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Thank you Mr Mayor for everything, if by any chance you change your mind please do so without shame because JHB ppl want you to continue. Please reconsider Mayor
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
You've shown true leadership today. Stand for what you believe in and not the position of power you hold. @HermanMashaba I truly respect you
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Thank you Sir! Not happy that your leaving but have to respect your decision
 
You my man are delusional if you think the DA with principles you signed up for existed. You are even more delusional to think we will forget how anti poor and xenophobic you are.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Thank you @helenzille and her troops for taking our mayor from us,thank you so much 💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
DA has always been this DA. What are you talking about?
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
A sad day for Jozi and South Africa 😞
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
All the best @HermanMashaba and I would like the the twitters to listen this👇 twitter.com/gvmothelesi15/…
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Kindly terminate your membership then.
 
Really .@HermanMashaba did the Constitution of .@Our_DA change?
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
We need a referendum to allow residents to directly elect a mayor that does not need to be affiliated with a party. A mayor is more important than political association. There is greater urgency in a role like that.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
You didn't read the fine print when you sign up, DA didn't change sir you tried to change the DA knowing very well ukuthi ngeke bashintshe
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Please dont join EFF or ANC
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
You are repeating the very same mistake leaders of the ANC did in protesting the election of Jacob Zuma, we are where we are today because of that angry decision, you'll regret.
 
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
So what happened to "serving the residents of Johannesburg" Herman?
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Dont even consider joining the @EFFSouthAfrica Mr Mashaba..keep you integrity and dignity. Those stooges will soon be going to jail.
 
Dear Mr Mashaba,

If you sign up with @Foonda_SA, we will always be here to support you with the difficulties of administrative tasks. So no more ‘Monday Blues’, only Green ones. 💚

We’ve got you covered!👌🏽😉 pic.twitter.com/gexdRuHCIQ
 
When I grow up I wanna be just like you #HermanMashaba — For standing up for what believe on. I salute you! 🤚🏿
 
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Thank you Sir. But I am very disappointed that you didn’t finish the race you started.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
But you signed up when Helen was in charge mos 🤷🏽‍♂️🤔
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
No... you gravely concerned that a white lady is back in charge! You were gladly recruited by this white lady.... you were a hypocrite and a fraud because then you had no problem, now that’s she’s back, you a problem with right wing what! She is white, you don’t like, race card!!
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Well done Mr Mashaba.... a lot of us must learn from your noble principles and stop selling our souls
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
I remember #HermanMashaba campaigning in Bekkersdal . DA will regret pushing out mashaba.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
It is sad for COJ, Gauteng and the country. Billing crisis returning, non-investment in infrastructure, some of the projects started may collapse or balloon in spend. Municipality finances will be under threat.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Loved it when u reminded them that they didn't win elections but got 38% of the vote!!
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
I’m sorry, are you saying you’ve just now noticed that @Our_DA are the worst kind of right-wing free market libertarians who have zero interest in healing the wounds of Apartheid?
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
I cant help but think that you have shot yourself in the foot as you would have ended your term as the best mayor JHB has EVER had. I also can't ignore how you have let the people of JHB down. The majority of whom were looking up to you to save the city from the hyenas.
 
"Herman Mashaba" Mayor of Johannesburg Resigns
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
The truth shall set you free uncle. I wonder if @MmusiMaimane thinks the DA is still the same.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Thank you Mr Mayor👏🏿 you’ve done well. A huge loss to the residents of Joburg
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Sad day indeed but my respect for you and your hard work will never taken away 👏👏👏👏👏👏
 
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
The truth is DA has never changed , they have remained true to who they are - racist party Racist hate blacks who think for themselves and can take decision they always like using black people as a face. I'm glad you have seen then for who they are and what they represent.
 
The DA has always been a racist party. You're the only one who wasn't aware of that.

O dirile go tletse seatla...re a leboga
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
There was no need to draw distinctions between suburbs and other suburban areas...that smacks of discrimination, despite the increased rates that people pay for services..why couldn't you do both? It sounds like a cheap shot and a weak argument.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
I'm proud that you stand your ground
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
The most painful resignation 💔
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Baba wam. Silimele, angiyilandeli DA kodwa umsebenzi obuwenza ubumuhle kakhulu.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Do you have a crystal ball that you could come to this conclusion before Zille actually have done any work in her new position? Lost all my respect for you! You have destroyed my faith in you!
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
The person taking over you, needs to grow quick on those shoes. Thank you for the work you have done. You got balls of steel..
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
2be honest u were never my favorite due 2choice of party. But then I blanketed DA n focused on u. When u were part of operation whatever in the city side by side with your employees, I ws sold. Less I forget the only DA member spoke out of Cyril's deadly rot. respect! Leadership!

In reply to @HermanMashaba
I'm not a Joburger but I'm sad to see you go ☹️
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
She white. Thats basically all your saying.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
You have exceptional service delivery People's Mayor. Farewell and wish you all the best in your future endeavours 🙏
 
I am not OK 😭😭😭😭
 
So it wasnt Helens leadership that changed it. Mmusi is leader
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
your decision to resign has nothing to do with @our_DA ,. you never campaigned for it. I wanted you to stay and protect COJ from the criminals but since you resigned all the best and I see this as political suicide.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
I will make it my mission that a black child does not vote for DA again from today this will be my campaign........ Mr Mashaba you did a great job sit. Thank u
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
RIP Joburg 😭😭😭😭😭
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Sadly, you allowed yourself to be seduced by Maimane's interpretation of what he decided the DA should be. The party policies existed long before the second coming of Maimane. Perhaps you should have discussed your concerns with Zille before your precipitous decision.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
How I wish my Mayor would do a Zandile Gumede and resign from resigning after 2 days.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Am happy about this, we can never let whites use us am happy you took a stand.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Let Zille keep her racism whilst u keep yoh xenophobia mr Herman
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
But #HermanMashaba, why is #race to blame if people are worse-off as measured by higher inequality, since 1994? Surely, the blame should be squarely placed on @MYANC (proudlymisrulingsince1994) and not #whiteness / #apartheid / #colonialism? Should they have corrected it? pic.twitter.com/cpawkVFAe6
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
"The DA caucus wanted me to prioritize suburbs over poor black communities". I have so much regards for you Mayor. #HermanMashaba
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
At least you can see when you are being sold a banana sir unlike other so called "black" leaders. Best wishes for the future.
 
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Mayor pls open a new party I'm sure most joburg residents will vote for you 🙏😭
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Gutted. But you have to admire the principle of the man. Something very rare in SA politics.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
You did your best, Mr Mayor. Unfortunately, the DA is dominated by rightwing forces. Progressive movements must collaborate and prevent these conservative elements, and bigots, from controlling JHB. 👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
You are leadership maybe the people of Joburg should vote in as an independent mayor... the people should fight for development by insisting you go on as their mayor. #HermanMashaba #independentmayor because if Jozi functions we all function
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Please come to the EFF Sir...EFF is the only home for such leaders like you, leaders who are fighting for the liberation of a black child in this country.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
But you have influences. Did you discuss this within party structure? Anyway, we know you were EFF Mayor not DA
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
If you think DA cares about any other city to govern,it will be the worst mistake. DA only cares about Cape Town and theres lots of reasons to that. They dont care whether they rule JHB or Tshwane,they can let go of them at anytime.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Salute Mr Mayor. You leave with your pride and integrity intact, thank you for choosing the people of Johannesburg and your country. In pro poor development we unite. Farewell
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Oh, please man Herman. You knew very well the DA is & has always been a Hiding Place for Racists. You and Mmusi just thought you could cash in for yourselves and it didn't work out. Any Black Person in the DA is right to jump before they push you. Just ask Patricia De Lille.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Which DA did you sign up to? The one led by @helenzille to where it was and handed to @MmusiMaimane ? Really?
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
My heart is bleeding Mr Mashaba, u were doing a good job. Now the hyenas are regrouping to take us backwards.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
objecting to the election of Zille because of her race makes you a racist. If you can’t understand that the essence of a truly non-racial party lies in the fact that there can’t be quotas and nobody may be excluded for any position on base of their race.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Sad day for SA. I hope your contribution to clean governance has not ended with this resignation. I wish you well.
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Thank you for serving the city and wanting to bring change in the @CityofJoburgZA. I hope one day you will have a chance, to continue what you started. Thank you sir. pic.twitter.com/skXNxvLwUv
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
You must learn to follow party rules, you can't have it both ways
 
 
In reply to @HermanMashaba
Hai Mashaba you should have stayed and pissed them off you were doing great in GP gogo baas must keep her racist province
 
It never was my brother.

At least you remain a Hero to @MmusiMaimane 😂
