Court interdict stops Sbusiso Emmanuel Ngcobo from appointment as acting deputy municipal manager for infrastructure and technical services.
Court interdict stops Sbusiso Emmanuel Ngcobo from appointment as acting deputy municipal manager for infrastructure and technical services.

ANC councillors in the uMhlathuze Municipality have obtained a court interdict stopping the appointment of the acting deputy municipal manager for infrastructure and technical services. 

In papers filed before the Pie­termaritzburg high court, the ANC said the appointment of Sbusiso Emmanuel Ngcobo — who was due to resume his duties from January 1 — was done without following the basic recruitment policy. 

The ANC said the decision to appoint Ngcobo contravened the Local Government Municipal Structures Act.
