JOHANNESBURG – Tshwane Mayor Randall Williams has said the African National Congress (ANC)’s suggestion of a vote of no confidence against him will not count.

Williams addressed the media on Monday on the anniversary of the Democratic Alliance (DA)-led coalition taking office.

He said that the multi-party coalition is stable enough to complete its five-year term without disruption.

The ANC in Tshwane said the DA-led coalition could not ensure adequate service delivery.

It said faulty street lighting, potholed roads, weak sewage infrastructure and a poor billing system were reasons the coalition should be ousted from power.

But Williams said the ANC had no right to remove him from office.

“As you may know, our coalition government is made up of the Democratic Alliance, ActionSA, Freedom Front Plus, African Christian Democratic Party, Inkatha Freedom Party and the Congress of the People (do). We all have a majority coalition government together, which gives us the advantage of being able to vote as a solid block on the council.”

Williams said that if coalition partners continue to work well together, there will be no need for so-called “kingmakers.”
