A picket organised by women in the City of Johannesburg and from other sectoral stakeholders will take place next week. Picket for Mashaba. He accused all women for having prostituted themselves into the jobs and the positions of which they currently hold. A case has been opened by Cde Parks Tau with Gender Equality.

Next week Thursday we are all invited@ 10am to gather at the Metro Centre. SAVE THE DATE 15 October 2016. We shall demand that he withdraws his appalling sexist statement and apologies as the Mayor. He shall see stars! Minimum of 5 per branch/community is required to attend! #Wathinta Abafazi Wathinta Imbokodo!!! Amandla! Please share and spread the word! #Womandla!!!

Former Johannesburg mayor Parks Tau launched a scathing attack on Mashaba, calling him a sexist and anti-black individual, leading an anti-transformation coalition government.

Tau was speaking at the funeral service of ANC councillor Nonhlanhla Mthembu who collapsed, and died at the city's inaugural council meeting, where he was replaced as the city's mayor.

The former mayor says Mashaba has no respect for women.
"The City of Johannesburg is today led by a man who believes that the women who are senior executives prostituted themselves to be in the jobs they are in."
