DA: Khume Ramulifho says JHB Council disrupted by undemocratic ANC thuggery

Today’s disruption of the Johannesburg Council, by members of the ANC and ANC-affiliates, is nothing less than undemocratic thuggery.

The ANC in Johannesburg has nothing to offer but chaos and violence, and is undermining the will of the people who voted the ANC out of power in Election 2016.

The DA condemns the ANC disruption of Council in the strongest terms, and the calculated, orchestrated way in which it unfolded shows that the ANC had pre-meditated this chaos.

That ANC Councillors assisted members of the MKMVA and the ANC-offshoot ‘Johannesburg Social Movement’ to stop the business of council and damage property, shows that the ANC came to council today with a singular mission to disrupt.

The DA-led government of Mayor Herman Mashaba will not be deterred and will continue to press forward in passing the Adjustment Budget. Mayor Mashaba’s government has the people’s business to do, and the ANC cannot stop this.

We welcome the City of Johannesburg confirmation that footage of the disruption will be studied and that criminal charges will be laid.

The time for the undemocratic ways of the ANC is over. Johannesburg has business to do.
