JOHANNESBURG: Makhubu, who served as the MMC for Finance says the ANC was dislodged out of government in the 2016 election due to complacency.
Newly-elected chairperson of the African National Congress (ANC) in the Johannesburg region, Geoff Makhubu says the party will refocus its attention on winning the hearts of voters.
Makhubu, who served as the MMC for Finance says the ANC was dislodged out of government in the 2016 election due to complacency.
In an interview on a Johannesburg-based radio station, Makhubu conceded that the ANC needed to change or risk its support base declining to below 50%.
Makhubu accused Jo’burg mayor Herman Mashaba of presenting some of the work done by the ANC administration as his own due to the organization’s failure to act quickly.
“He saw an opportunity after seeing 1000 title deeds. He pretended as if his office organized those and then went on a PR exercise to distribute them,” Makhubu told hosts Bob Mabena and Thabo Mdluli.
