KOUGA Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks has reshuffled his Mayoral Committee.

Delivering his first State of the Municipality Address, Hendricks thanked Speaker Hattingh Bornman and his Mayoral Committee for their unwavering support over the past ten months.

“I would like to thank our Speaker, Hattingh Bornman, for the expert manner in which he has been chairing our Council meetings and for the hands-on manner in which he has been supporting municipal programmes, particularly, the implementation of the Ward Development Fund, through which R1,5 million has been made available to ward councillors to support organisations and implement quick-win projects in their wards.

“My Mayoral Committee has also proven themselves willing and able to help keep Kouga on track. The scope of the work they have to do is enormous, which has prompted me to fill the vacancy on the Mayoral Committee, which was created when our former Mayor passed away.

“In order to ensure that the new Mayoral Committee is where they are needed most, the following changes will come into effect from 1 March:

  • Clr Brenton Williams will continue to head the Finance portfolio,
  • Clr Daniel Benson remains in place as the portfolio head for Community Services, and
  • Clr Freddy Campher retains his position as head of the Infrastructure and Engineering portfolio.
  • Clr Bryan Dhludhlu will be moving to the Corporate Services portfolio,
  • The Planning, Development and Tourism Portfolio will be split in two, with Clr Frances Baxter taking charge of Tourism and a new member, Alderman Ben Rheeder, heading the Planning & Development portfolio.

Hendricks further commended Municipal Manager Charl du Plessis for “serving way beyond the call of duty”, as well as the municipal directors and staff for the “tireless work they have been doing to move the blue bus (Kouga) closer to our end destination”.
