Thank you @HermanMashaba. You served the people of Joburg well, breaking through political boundaries. You were one of the biggest assets of the DA, likely to give us an outright majority in 2021. I am sad to see your tenure end this way. Heartbreaking, in fact.

Aker lena Phumzile you don't wana bow out with integrity. Imagine if you, Maimane and Mashaba can form a political party, take away all the blacks and whites who believe in ckean governance from the DA. You would be a breath of fresh air for al of us.
 
In reply to @zilevandamme
A lot of good, competent people, unable to work together even though they know how high the stakes are. Ultimately, SA politics remains a game for selfish individuals, some of whom have convinced themselves that they are working for the people. And it's not just a DA thing

Outright majority? Your support dropped from 38% to 29% in Joburg in the 3yrs he was in charge. 馃檮馃

Phumzile the ground is fertile for a black led liberal / progressive party. We need an alternative to the current top 3.
 
In reply to @zilevandamme
The ship is sinking Sisi, you better jump out while it's early. Fact your DA is NP, operating as if is care about black folks. Where is Lindiwe Zulu, Maimane they plan to crucify him long ago. Join black masses in marching towards Economic Emancipation in our lifetime
 
In reply to @zilevandamme
Herman Mashaba is a principled leader and unlike other people we know did not become mayor as a carrier.

In reply to @zilevandamme
Dammit. A politician I actually liked. DA seems intent on stuffing up their image. First mayor Patricia in CT now the Mayor Herman. What a mess

No comment on what he accused @Our_DA of 馃し馃徔鈥嶁檧锔
 
In reply to @zilevandamme
According to Mashaba the DA "believe race is irrelevant in the discussion of inequality and poverty" this is either true or false. Given his pedigree and seniority this is more likely true. You, Mmusi and company staying in such a party is an indictment that you endorse this.
 
In reply to @zilevandamme
Please dont stage a walkout in Parliament for any reason since you failed to walk out of your own party. Unless once again you guy endorse the right wing rhetoric. Your statement is meaningless, if u truly believed in Mashaba you would show a greater support and solidarity
 
In reply to @zilevandamme
Might sound unfair but you and your fellows are no different to ANC cadres who put party politics ahead of the country. If you guys rather keep quite now if the DA where to be in power you will equally say nothing in the face of injustice.

Mr Mashaba, you are an example to an up and coming leaders. You speak through to power. Your leadership style is remarkable, far ahead of your peers. You do not compromise your values for power.We need more leaders like you in SA. Unfortunately, there is no one like you.

The greatest want of the world is the want of men-men who will not be bought or sold, men who in their in most souls are true and honest, men who do not fear to call a spade a spade. Men whose consience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole. Men who stand for the right .

I am disappointed, Herman made no effort to find common ground with Helen, if he really had Joburg at heart he would鈥檝e stayed, Based on his rhetoric of late I really believe he was influenced by the EFF. Sad really, I had hopes for him being DA leader one day.
 
In reply to @zilevandamme
Resign too sis, the DA is not for vocal blacks. They want conformist there only.

We thank fighter Mashaba for his loyal service.

When people resign from such lucrative jobs you should know there's a serious problem........and at some point those DA problems would be laid bare for everyone to see Just wait until Maimanes term ends.

Your time will come be prepared
 
Phumzile and Mmusi must get some notes fom Herman
 
The decision for resignation of Mashaba is not new.He had already had this plan before.His next political move is the motives of his resignation.To mention Zille is an excuses
 
I'm a member of DA because of HermanMashaba am really disappointed and hate DA for what they did to him
 
What a sad day. You still had a legacy to live up to at Johannesburg Art Gallery. Sadly @HermanMashaba never will get to fulfil the promise he made of returning JAG to the epicentre of culture in the city. Or maybe you will make a comeback in another way?

I smell a new political party as a political home for all those who feel that,DA is now in the hands of right wing.
 
In reply to @zilevandamme
How many more resigitions should we expect to come to the fore? Is the DA still the well functioning blue machine?
 
In reply to @zilevandamme
fool yourself as much as you like that party belongs to white minority and you and other black leaders you are filling pockets at the expense of majority black voters within @Our_DA

If Herman really stood against corruption and for doing what's best for the people, he would have seen out his term and not stood for re-election. His actions are clearly to undermine the DA and its democratic change of its Fed co.

Mayor @HermanMashaba was a true asser to the people or South Africa not only the DA. He is a patriot and has passion for RSA. The voters of Jozi, loved Mashaba. I once said Mr Mashaba was doing us a favour by doing politics. It's a loss to everyone who loves South Africa
