The United Democratic Movement’s (UDM) Luxolo Namette has been appointed as the new Deputy Mayor of the Nelson Mandela Bay (NMB) Metro.
The election of a new Deputy Mayor was necessitated when the former Deputy Mayor, Tshonono Buyeye, was appointed to the mayoral committee last week.
He resigned to take up the position as head of the Infrastructure and Engineering Portfolio in the committee.
Namette says he is ready to serve the people of the Metro.
“I am humbled and very much appreciative and I call on all the people of the Nelson Mandela Metro to utilize my office, to accelerate service delivery and change lives of our people,” says Namette.
We made it once again for the people of NMB https://t.co/NF0w8nnVfa
