Sedibeng Mayor Mahole Mofokeng must resign or be removed from office following yet another report for being arrested for drunken driving.

According to reports and cell phone video footage, Mayor Mofokeng is seen to be heavily under the influence of alcohol and unable to contain himself.

As a senior community member and the executive head of a local municipality, the mayor’s behaviour should reflect the dignity and grace of his office, and his actions should serve as an example to the local youth and fellow residents.
Stumbling around in public in this state; the mayor clearly shows that he does not take his position seriously.

South Africa is a country with exceedingly high rates of alcohol abuse, and it is up to the leaders whom we look up to, to set the example.

Given that this is not the first time the mayor has made a mockery of his office, he has no other option but to resign.

Failing that, the ANC should remove him from office.

The people of Sedibeng deserve better.
