DA’s Mashaba, mayor for Johannesburg, metro has issued an order for all illegal foreigners living in the city to vacate the city.  He said this at a media conference in Johannesburg on Thursday while reporting on his achievements in his 100 days in office.

“You see, for me, when I call these  criminals, I want them to understand that they are criminals. They are holding our country to ransom and I am going to be the last South African to allow it,” Mashaba said.

“But in the meantime I have already started engaging embassies in our country for them to know their residents in our city are here criminally.

He also added that he cant do it alone and would be needing the help of both the Provincial and National Government to get this done;

“We will engage the provincial and national government to help us in this regard but I don’t believe anyone can expect us to tolerate activities of criminality.” He said as he claimed that under the ANC’s watch, criminals (foreigners) were allowed to come into SA without proper papers but that cannot happen under the DA’s watch.
