Herman Mashaba is DA’s Joburg mayoral candidate

Businessman Herman Mashaba is the Democratic Alliance (DA)’s Johannesburg mayoral candidate for the 2016 local government elections.

Mashaba was competing with Wits Professor and DA Councillor Rabelani Dagada for the position.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane made the announcement in Newtown, Johannesburg, on Saturday morning.

“We stand here today [on Saturday] having undergone that process that we [are] proud that the person who gets nominated, is then ultimately our best candidate for the job going forward. So I want to say upfront that it is also my great privilege to introduce to you the fact that our mayoral candidate for the City of Johannesburg will be none other than businessman, entrepreneur Herman Mashaba,” adds Maimane.
