The ANC says removing Herman Mashaba as mayor is something that is being done in the best interest of Johannesburg residents.
On Thursday, the party will table a motion of no confidence in Mashaba.
On Wednesday, the ANC Joburg Region released a statement saying they were pleased with the support of the Patriotic Alliance, the African Independent Congress as well as AL-Jamal, others parties and councillors who gave them 136 votes to remove Mashaba.
The party said all the Councillors had decided to act in the best interest of Johannesburg residents and vote Mashaba out.
"We are aware that Mashaba is doing all he can to prevent the motion from succeeding. This includes threatening coalition partners and a DA Councillor. We want to assure Mashaba that the motion will succeed and we will do everything in our power to protect the rights of the Councillor to make informed choices on the motion."
