Municipal manager likely to lose his job

2014-11-21 00:00

A MUNICIPAL manager from the uMkhambathini local municipality could find himself out of a job after the ­Co-operative Governance Department found that he was not qualified for the job.

The manager was not named.

The department said it has been conducting probes into the qualifications of municipal managers and discovered that the uMkhambathini (Camperdown) municipal manager did not meet the criteria.

The department recommended that the municipality review this appointment and consider removing the ­municipal manager.

“The steps we are taking against this municipal manager demonstrate we mean business when we say we want to professionalise local government and that we adopt a no-nonsense attitude when it comes to ensuring that only qualified, experienced and dedicated individuals are eligible to run KwaZulu-Natal municipalities,” it said.
