Energy and Climate Change: Phindile Maxiti, Human Settlements: Malusi Booi, Safety and Security: JP Smith, Spatial Planning and Environment: Marian Nieuwoudt, Transport: Felicity Purchase, Urban Management: Grant Twigg, Water and Waste: Xanthea Limberg.

“I believe that this structure will promote a more streamlined focus, allowing for more effective and efficient service delivery to the people of Cape Town.

In November, when I announced the new Mayco members, who have been allocated their portfolios, I said that I have chosen this team as they have demonstrated their ability to carry out their duties with excellence, they have demonstrated their commitment to work together as a united committee, and for their passion to serve the people of this city. They have shown their eagerness in recent weeks to address some of the shortcomings that have already been identified and we have discussed some of the exciting plans that they want to implement. Effective and efficient service delivery is the top priority.”
