Please Speak to Us, Mr Mayor


Last week, Joburg Advocacy Group wrote to Mayor Amos Masondo requesting a face-to-face meeting to discuss possible community-based initiatives to address the growing storm over crime and service delivery in the city. We received neither an acknowledgement or a response, and feel this is indicative of the uncaring and unaccountable approach of local government to the people living and working in the country's economic hub.

Read our letter to the Mayor here.
Then write to him at MiddletonB@joburg.org.za and urge him to heed our call. By the way, this e-mail address is for his personal assistant, and was supplied by the Kensington Residents' Association. We can't get a direct e-mail address for the Mayor for love or money ...
Update (21 November, 10:30): Not even a word of acknowledgement from the Mayor's office ...

Did you send the letter per hand, registered mail, or regular post?

This one was sent by e-mail - directly to the Mayor's personal assistant. Sorry to be responding only now - haven't been receiving notification of comments by e-mail. I'll look into it ...
