The Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Dr Zweli Mkhize, has indicated that his department is working to address the issues relating to the appointment of municipal man­agers.

This will improve the smooth operation of municipalities.

He said his department has teamed up with the South African Local Government Association (Salga) to tackle the challenge around the appointment of municipal man­agers.

Mkhize spoke at the Council of Mayors meeting held in Cape Town on 6 February.

This meeting, with the theme “Enhancing the role of munici­palities in pro­moting investment and job creation”, was hosted by Salga.

The council is expected to henceforth meet annually.
