Statement issued by Thandi Nontenja – UDM Councillor in the City of Johannesburg

The United Democratic Movement (UDM) commends Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba for the swift action regarding allegations of corruption by MMC for Economic Development Cllr Sharon Peetz.

Corruption has no colour or political affiliation and this administration of the City of Johannesburg is here to root out corruption regardless of who commits it.

It must be made clear that no one is above the law; irrespective of a person’s high office. Justice must take its course.

The UDM is also interested to see what actions the Democratic Alliance will take regarding their councillor’s alleged misconduct.
