Ekurhuleni mayoral committee unveiled

2011-05-26 17:01
Johannesburg - Four members of the old Ekurhuleni mayoral committee have been appointed to the new one announced by mayor Mondli Gungubele on Thursday.

They were Queen Duba, who would be the member responsible for human settlements; Aubrey Nxumalo, water and energy; Mthuthuzeli Siboza, community safety; and Khosi Maluleke, health and social development.

"The new mayoral committee has been constituted in such a way that it puts emphasis on the areas of priority for the metro," spokesperson Zweli Dlamini said.

Gungubele took over as mayor from Ntombi Mekgwe in November last year, and remained in the position after last week's local government election.

New members

The other members of his mayoral committee are: Zeni Tshongweni, for sport, heritage, recreation, arts and culture; Bernard Nikani, city planning and economic development; Tilly Vuyelwa Mabena, environmental development; Moses Makwakwa, finance; Phelisa Nkunjana, roads and stormwater; and Thumbu Mahlangu, public transport, planning and provision.

Gungubele reappointed Patricia Kumalo as the speaker of council. Robert Mashego was appointed as the Chief Whip in the council.

Dlamini said the infrastructure services portfolio had been "unbundled" into water and energy, roads and stormwater, and public transport planning and provision.

The corporate services portfolio would now report directly to the mayor and would managed by the city manager on a day-to-day basis.

Gungubele said this was because issues of human resources, information and communications technology and customer relationship management should not have to be unnecessarily politicised because "they talk to the efficiency of the city".

The ANC received 62% of the vote (1.55 million votes) in Ekurhuleni in the local government elections, to secure 125 of the 202 seats in the metro.
