Where we govern

City of Johannesburg

This is the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality’s first term under DA coalition government. Already, important steps have been made towards bringing honest leadership, more jobs and better services to the Economic Centre of South Africa. This includes fast tracking title-deed delivery and completing Joburg’s first housing list in order to bring more and more residents the dignity and economic asset that is one’s own home.

This is the City’s vision:


Every employee must adjust to the environment of a new coalition government.


The City must be responsive and focus on the most deprived.

Economic Growth

We aim to grow the City’s economy by a minimum of 5%.

Skills Audit

Every employee must hold their position because of what they know, not who they know.

Stop Corruption

Former Gauteng HAWKS Head, Shadrack Sibiya will lead our new internal investigations unit, to combat public enemy number one.

Housing Maintenance

A list of all semi-completed housing units within the City will be produced so that our people can have houses to live in.

Housing List

For the first time in Johannesburg’s history, a housing list has been completed. This list will be available in government offices and on the City’s website.

Title Deeds

Title-deed delivery must be fast-tracked. In 2013 not a single title deed was handed out. Within a week, we had 2000 ready for processing.

Clinic Project

We have launched a pilot project for a clinic to operate for extended hours. Monday to Friday: 7am - 10pm, Saturdays: 7am - 1pm.

Inner City Revitalisation

We will bring world-class investment and development to the Inner City.
