The Patriotic Alliance (PA) says it will be voting alongside ActionSA in its bid to have a motion of no confidence against Johannesburg Mayor, Thapelo Amad and Council speaker, Colleen Makhubele.

On Thursday, PA leader, Gayton McKenzie announced following a two-day national executive committee meeting that it would support the multi-party’s efforts to oust Amad.

This comes after ActionSA earlier this week submitted two motions – one against the mayor and Makhubele.

McKenzie added though his party support the bid to remove Amad, it also wanted to see a PA leader succeed him as the next Johannesburg mayor.

Through a series of tweets posted on Thursday morning, McKenzie said he was committed to spending time in office with the aim of putting the city back on course.

“Together, we can create a prosperous, safe, and inclusive CoJ. It is time for change. What I learnt in Central Karoo is that it is not about me and what I can do. It is about paying attention to what everyone knows should be done but lack the courage to do,” said McKenzie.

The multi-party coalition which was led by the Democratic Alliance (DA) lost control of Johannesburg when the PA changed its vote to assist the African National Congress (ANC) and Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) take power of the city.
