Life Story & Timeline

2019

Mpho Franklyn Parks Tau (born 1970) was the mayor of the city of Johannesburg, South Africa from 2011-2016. He is a member of the African National Congress, and was the second democratically elected mayor, after Amos Masondo, of the Unified City of Johannesburg. He lost the mayoralty to the DA’s Herman Mashaba in a historic defeat on the 22 of August 2016. He is currently the Deputy Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional affairs since 29 May 2019.

The inclusion of dedicated cycling lanes in the Rea Vaya system is a further development to minimise the city’s carbon emissions and encourage healthier lifestyles for the city’s 5 million residents.

Early in 2015, Mayor Tau hosted the first Blue Economy discussions in the city in collaboration with the Zero Emissions Research and Initiative (ZERI), resulting in at least two initiatives to improve the city’s standing as a blue economy leader:

2014

During his time as Mayor, Tau moved swiftly to attend the climate change issues facing Johannesburg and hosted the C40 Mayors Summit in February 2014, promising to cutting the city’s carbon emissions by 1.6 million tons by 2020. Adding tangible outcomes to this commitment, the city has started offering incentives to residents to upgrade their own buildings, making them more energy efficient and for utilising more natural resources.

Launched in September 2014, the [email protected] initiative is designed to create an opportunity for communities to partner with the city in the delivery of municipal services in their own neighbourhoods. The project helps both create direct employment as well improves access for small business to become service providers to the city. To date, [email protected] has enabled and supported over 52000 livelihoods in the city.

In an unprecedented move for a major city in South Africa, Mayor Tau kept his election campaign promise and in 2014 appointed the first independent ombudsman for the City of Johannesburg. This move, together with an anti-corruption hotline, marks a turning point in the city’s administration. The ombudsman will independently investigate complaints of corruption in the city and ensure clean governance for all city contracts.

1994

After apartheid came to an end in 1994 and South Africa’s liberation party, the Africa National Congress (ANC), took power, Tau continued to take on roles enabling him to help build a united and equitable South Africa. He was 24 years old when he was elected regional secretary of the ANC in Johannesburg and in 1996, he went on to serve on the Southern Metropolitan Local Council’s Urban Development Committee. In 2000, following the first democratic elections to take place at city level, Tau was appointed as a Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) of Johannesburg, overseeing the portfolios of Developmental Planning, Transportation, and Environment from 2000 to 2003, as well as the Finance and Economic Development portfolio between 2003 and 2011.
