ETHEK­WINI MAYOR ‘HAS NOT RE­SIGNED’

The Witness - Wheels - - NEWS -

ETHEK­WINI mayor James Nx­u­malo will com­plete his term, coun­cil speaker Lo­gie Naidoo said yes­ter­day.

Spec­u­la­tion was rife yes­ter­day that Nx­u­malo had re­signed, but Naidoo quashed the ru­mours, say­ing he had not re­ceived a res­ig­na­tion let­ter from the mayor. He said Nx­u­malo’s emo­tional bud­get speech, which he de­liv­ered at the Dur­ban City Hall on Tues­day, could have been in­ter­preted as his res­ig­na­tion.

Nx­u­malo re­port­edly bid his coun­cil­lors farewell and thanked the coun­cil for their hard work and com­mit­ment.
