KwaZulu-Natal's largest water board, Umgeni Water, announced yet another change to its leadership structure on Tuesday afternoon when it issued a notice stating that Sandile Dube would be replaced by Mboniseni Dlamini as acting chief executive officer.
The announcement came through a shareholder notice issued by the water board, following operational challenges including pump failures causing water shortages at Umgeni Water's Durban Heights Water Works at the beginning of the week.
Dlamini's appointment follows the resignation of former acting CEO Nomalungelo Mkhize in October and Dube's subsequent appointment. The board held a meeting on Saturday and resolved to replace Dube with Dlamini.
The shareholder notice announced that Dube would be working with the operations team of Umgeni Water to stabilise water delivery to parts of the City of Durban, whose metropolitan municipality is is one of Umgeni Water's biggest clients.
"The board resolved to relieve Mr Dube from his duties as the acting chief executive to enable him to focus on strengthening the operations team and to focus on bringing stability to water delivery, imperative to our key customer eThekwini Municipality," the notice said.
The notice said as Dube returned to leading Umgeni Water's operations division, Dlamini will go from serving as Msinsi Holdings managing director to assuming his responsibilities as the acting CEO Umgeni Water with effect from Tuesday 30 November.
