MUNICIPAL elections are over, however, the future is unclear for some councillors including the former Greater Kokstad mayor, Nosisa Jojozi­ and the former Kwa Sani mayor, Mdu Banda, who are to be replaced.
It is unclear where the ruling party will place Jojozi, Banda and other former councillors who are not returning.Mayors who are returning to their position include Umzimkhulu mayor, Mphuthumi Mpabanga and Ubuhlebezwe mayor Zamo Nxumalo­, the Harry Gwala region ANC chairperson.

Beki Mtolo, former Greater Kokstad deputy mayor, has replaced Jojozi­ and Ngeneleni Mncwabe is the mayor for new Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma municipality.

The ANC deputy provincial secretary, Mluleki Ndobe, said the party was comfortable with the performance during elections and they had won new wards in some KZN areas.

Ndobe said mayors are deployed for one term and when the term ends the party will decide about their future.

“The party looks at principles when deploying cadres to municipalities. Jojozi is to be given a responsibility that will be announced soon.”

Ndobe called on municipalities in Harry Gwala to work hard to deliver services to people.

“People of Kokstad and in the new Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma Municipality want to see water and sanitation.
“There must be no honeymoon period for councillors who are deployed to work for the people. People­ must see work.”

He said the ruling party is going to keep a close eye on Kokstad with the aim of bringing political stability to the area.

Municipalities are expected to inaugurate new councillors soon.
