ANALYSIS: Unpacking Mpho Phalatse being ousted as Mayor of Johannesburg.

Mpho Phalatse voted out as Johannesburg mayor for second time

She was voted out during a council meeting on Thursday, where 140 councillors voted for her ousting, while 129 councillors voted against the motion to remove her.

Her removal shines a spotlight on the instability of coalition governments, which political pundits say are more about staying in power than addressing service delivery needs. This was not the first attempt to have Phalatse removed as the first citizen of SA’s largest metro and economic hub.
