Mayor Matongo succeeded Mayor Geoff Makhubo who died in July from Covid-19 related complications.

His appointment as Joburg Mayor attracted massive criticism after he proudly announced his Zimbabwean roots during his acceptance speech.

“I Jolidee Matongo, the son of the late Zimbabwean immigrant Edmond Matongo, do hereby accept the nomination for the position of executive mayor of our city,” he said.

The hashtag #WeRejectMayorOfJHB went viral on Twitter after a faction from South Africa called for his removal from office on the notion that he was not South African.
