JOHANNESBURG – Tshwane Mayor Randall Williams has complained about the state of the city’s workforce, saying it does not meet their mandate.

Randall spoke to the media on Monday to mark the one-year anniversary of the Democratic Alliance (DA)-led administration.

He said that despite some progress, it would take a long time to resolve the administrative problems that arose before the African National Congress (ANC) was in power.

The ANC in Tshwane accused the DA-led administration of failing to ensure service delivery.

Among the complaints, he cited malfunctioning street lights, potholed roads, ailing sewage infrastructure and a poor billing system.

But Williams lashed out at the party, saying it had installed a huge municipal staff structure that made it difficult to deliver services.

“You have very few plumbers, you have very few electricians. We are very difficult,” said the mayor.

Williams asked residents for patience, saying the city’s multi-party coalition was stable enough to improve governance over time.
