Msunduzi yet to fill vacant positions of senior managers

2013-10-15 00:00

THE year is almost over and the Msunduzi Municipality still does not have its full complement of senior managers.

Two of the five posts for deputy municipal managers (DMMs) still have to be filled, while corporate services and community services have acting DMMs.

DA councillor Bill Lambert said at Thursday’s Executive Committee meeting that the interviews for these posts were concluded months ago. He asked for a report on why the appointments had not been made.

Lambert said it was unfair for municipal manager Mxolisi Nkosi to carry the load, adding the delay in the appointments also affected service delivery because both units had important functions within the municipality.

Corporate affairs manages human resources and administration of the municipality. Community services takes care of the parks, swimming pools, cemeteries, traffic department, dump sites and environmental health unit.

Mayor Chris Ndlela said that Lambert was raising a matter of common concern.
