Political Party

Colleen Makhubele’s political career has been a success since she kicked it off in 2021. She shared her vision for the city of Johannesburg, saying that it is “to create a place where people want to safely live, work, learn, and play. Johannesburg needs professionals, not politicians. I am accountable, reliable, and incorruptible.”

Sharing why she wanted to be Mayor, she said, “I want to be Mayor and a source of inspiration for young women who will come after me. I have encountered so many little girls who are ecstatic to think I could be their Mayor and that they, too, could be Mayor one day.” She also shared that she “cannot sit on the sidelines when so much is at stake for our city. We need a fresh, new, dynamic leader who can harness our momentum. We cannot afford more of the same – the same people, the same characters, the same ideas with no new solutions.

Some call her success on the political scene a meteoric rise. She served for seven months as chair of chairs in the council for the city of Johannesburg. She was also responsible for acting as Deputy Speaker. In late September 2022, she was elected as the new speaker of the City’s Council. EWN reported that “Councillors in the city gathered in the council chambers in Braamfontein on Wednesday where Makhubele was officially elected.”
