2 Mayor concludes roadshow
GRAAFF-REINET — The Mayor of the Dr Beyers Naudé Local Municipality, Cllr Deon de Vos, started last week with a roadshow during which he introduced the top management of the municipality.
The roadshow commenced in Nieu-bethesda, and ended this week in the Horseshoe area of Graaff-reinet.
The Mayor explained the current financial situation of the Municipality, while also assuring the community that the administration, as well as the political leadership, are still focused on making DBNLM the best municipality in the Eastern Cape province.
“The organogram has been approved by Council,” he explained to the community.
“We are now in the process of performing a skills audit as well as placing qualified employees. My stance is this: if you are not qualified for the duties assigned to you, or if you do not perform the duties, you must leave. There are many here in the community who are qualified and who want to work.”
Cllr De Vos introduced Dr Eddie Rankwana, the municipal manager, Mr Sizwe Mvunelwa, the Director: Community Services and Ms Heleen Nagel, the Chief Financial Officer.
He also introduced Ivor Berrington (Director: Engineering and Planning) as well as Jama Vumazonke, who acted as municipal manager until Dr Rankwana’s appointment on September 1, 2017.
