Johannesburg - Rehana Moosajee, a member of the Johannesburg mayoral committee, has resigned, a statement from the mayor's office said on Sunday.

Moosajee was the MMC of transport in the City of Johannesburg.

Spokesperson for the mayor's office Fred Makoko said her resignation takes effect as from 1 March.

"Councillor Moosajee cited personal reasons for her resignation," said Makoko.

She was selected to serve as the transport MMC in 2006 when the portfolio was first introduced.

"Under her leadership the City embarked upon establishing Africa's first Bus Rapid Transport System - Reya Vaya; that is environmentally friendly and empowers communities and business people from previously disempowered communities," said Makoko.

"Under her leadership Johannesburg created a transport system which is the recipient of many awards across the globe [and] it transports approximately one million passengers a month, and is operated by among others local taxi drivers and owners."

Executive mayor Parks Tau thanked Moosajee for serving the city "with diligence and energy".

"She leaves the city with a viable transport system which she helped transform," he said.

Christine Walters has been appointed to take over Moosajee's position.

Walters previously served in the mayoral committee as MMC for community development as well as infrastructure and services.
