The motion of no confidence against City of Joburg mayor Mpho Phalatse has been withdrawn.
Addressing the media on Thursday evening, Phalatse said while she was not surprised by the withdrawal of the motion against her, she was concerned about the frequency of the motions.

“There is always a threat of a motion of no confidence in our politics, we’ve got a democratic society and we’ve got to give people the opportunity to do so. I have, of course, a concern about the frequency of these motions and this is something we will be tabling to our rules committee,” she said.
“Ekurhuleni and parliament have a six-month rule, the City of Johannesburg has no limits to the number of motions of confidence that can be brought and that’s a bit problematic, it does not speak well for stability. That’s something that urgently needs to be looked at. Our focus now ill be to make every day count, every day that we’ve been given to serve our residents will be used exactly for that reason.”
