Gauteng residents continue to suffer poor basic service delivery from the Gauteng Provincial Government (GPG) under the leadership of Premier David Makhura.

Under his leadership, Gauteng residents have only been made promise after promise with no tangible solution to their basic needs being met.


Since taking office, Premier Makhura has promised to ensure that job opportunities are created, that the township economy is revitalised and that the current housing backlog which is over a million is addressed. However, none of the above promises has materialised.

Therefore, we will continue to put pressure on the Gauteng Provincial Legislature’s (GPL) programming committee to put our motion of no confidence (MONC) in Premier Makhura on the agenda of the next GPL sitting.


Makhura has become known as the no-action Premier. Full of promises but lacking in delivery. The DA has built a very strong case as to why Makhura is unfit to continue as Premier of Gauteng as he continues failing to arrest corruption in his administration, curb crime and stimulate economic growth in the province.

The DA remains committed to seeing our MONC in Makhura despite speculation that he may be removed. We believe that Makhura needs to answer to the people of Gauteng for his underperformance which he must do during the MONC debate.

Furthermore, the DA does not expect a better performance from MEC Lesufi who is mooted to replace Makhura. Gauteng residents can expect more of the same from him as he will be a hamstrung Premier who will not be allowed by his party to act against corruption. He would ultimately have to answer to a PEC controlled by his rival, MEC Lebogang Maile, rendering Lesufi a lame duck premier.

The only way to deal with constant failing ANC premiers is by voting the ANC out of power in Gauteng in 2024 and replacing it with a capable DA government.
