Randall Williams elected Tshwane Mayor unopposed

23 November 2021

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Gauteng wishes to congratulate Randall Williams who was elected as Executive Mayor of Tshwane unopposed. Cllr Katlego Mathebe has been elected as Council Speaker and Cllr Christo van der Heever the Council Chief Whip.

The DA took over governance after the municipality was illegally placed under administration in 2020. In the eight months of ANC-appointed administrators taking over, the City accumulated a budget deficit of R4 billion and service delivery was at an all-time low.

In just 11 months of taking over, Mayor Williams was able to turn things around by implementing plans to fix electricity outages, repairing potholes, streetlights, water leaks and restoring basic services that were neglected under the ANC.

The DA has full confidence that Mayor Williams and his caucus will continue in the trajectory of good governance, eradicating corruption and serving in the interest of the people of Tshwane.

We look forward to seeing Mayor Williams implement his 10-point key plan for the City of Tshwane which includes:

Prioritisation of the electrical grid and water infrastructure.

Providing stringent financial management and oversight.

Promoting employment and economic growth in the city.

Enhancing city safety and emergency services.

Maintaining a clean and protected natural environment.

Developing the road infrastructure and advance mobility.

Supporting the vulnerable and providing social relief.

Modernisation and digitization of city processes.

Promoting good governance, accountability and transparency.

Implementing a robust Covid-19 management strategy

The DA wishes Mayor Williams and his team well.
