Gauteng Premier David Makhura and Human Settlements and Co-operative Governance MEC, Lebogang Maile, will be informing the public on the decision taken by the provincial executive council regarding the City of Tshwane’s governance and leadership crisis.
The City is facing a leadership conundrum following the resignation of Mayor Stevens Mokgalapa in February. The entire executive, which served under Mokgalapa, was automatically dissolved when he left office.
Acting City Manager Makgorometje Makgata’s three-month contract has also come to an end.
“MEC Maile and Premier Makhura will hold a media briefing early this morning. They will be communicating to the public the decision that has been taken by the executive council in relation to the future of the City of Tshwane. The briefing will be taking place at the Gauteng Provincial Legislature at 08:00,” says Maile’s Spokesperson, Castro Ngobese.
Good morning people of Gauteng. This morning at 8 am MEC @LebogangMaile1 and I will hold a joint media briefing to update the public on how the @GautengProvince will deal with the impasse that the @CityTshwane finds itself in.
The briefing will take place at the @GPLegislature.
