Christmas came early for the ruling party, at the ANC headquarters, Luthuli house in Johannesburg. The Gauteng DA Premier candidate, Solly Msimanga showered them with gifts, an orange suit and cuffs outside the quarters. Solly said, the act was the DA calling for action to be taken against corrupt ANC officials.
Still on the spirit of giving, does the former Mayor of Tshwane intend on sending his brother Nkululeko Msimanga a gift. Nkululeko has been implicated in the computer theft at the Tshwane municipal offices. The Tshwane ANC claim the alleged theft took place between the 12 and 19 March, when Nkululeko was caught on camera carrying out boxes from the municipal offices.
Following the recent shutdowns in the Jacaranda city, The east of Pretoria came to a standstill on Monday morning. Tshwane Metro carried out evictions at the illegally occupied flats in Nelmaphius, Solomon Mahlangu Drive. Although the Metro has deemed the evictions a success rumors of rubber bullets flying around have been go up viral. The angry and now homeless occupants of the vacant flats, vowed to boycott the upcoming general elections taking place on the 8th of May.
The allocation of the RDP houses has been put under scrutiny as local claim that people as far as Limpopo have been prioritised while locals are overlooked. More shutdowns are expected to take place in the DA/ EFF governed city.
On a victorious note, the Mamelodi taxi drivers can now breathe with a sight of relief, as the R 200 fee, known as the Vusi Khekhe fee will not be collected until further notice. On that note we say halala black girl magic halala, Thuso Mbedu makes history, as the first South African actress to land a lead role in an American series. Shine Thuso shine.
