South Africa: Johannesburg becomes nation’s first major city to be governed by pro-Sharia Islamic party

Thapelo Amad is unlikely to be in any position to implement Sharia provisions, which will lead some eager-to-be-fooled Infidels to assume that such provisions do not exist. Eventually, however, in South Africa and elsewhere, the truth will be obvious to everyone.

“Member of Islamic Fundamentalist Party Takes Over as Johannesburg Mayor,” by Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart, January 29, 2023:

Thapelo Amad, a member of the Islamic fundamentalist party Al Jamah-ah, was chosen as mayor of Johannesburg, South Africa, despite representing a tiny faction in the city council.

Amad, whose party advocates government by Islamic principles, has no national or provincial representatives, and just three city council members out of 270, following municipal elections in 2021.

Yet he was the consensus pick of a coalition of minority parties who joined to oust the incumbent mayor, Mpho Phalatse, who represents the Democratic Alliance, the country’s leading opposition party.

Last year, as Breitbart News reported, the African National Congress (ANC) led an effort to oust Mpho after she had been in office just a few months. The ANC is losing support nationwide but is determined to prevent the opposition from gaining a foothold in local government.

That effort was declared unconstitutional by the courts, and Mpho was restored to office. She was ousted last week by another no confidence vote, however, and replaced by Amad, with the support of the ANC-led minority.

Johannesburg now becomes the first major city in South Africa to be led by an Islamic party….
