Ekurhuleni city manager's resignation not part of change in govt - city
His resignation comes as the ANC seeks to form a coalition government with smaller parties.
JOHANNESBURG - The City of Ekurhuleni says the resignation of its manager Khaya Ngema has nothing to do with a possible change in the metro's government.
Ngema's resignation was confirmed yesterday.
He has served the metro since 2009.
His resignation comes as the African National Congress (ANC) seeks to form a coalition government with smaller parties to retain executive power in that metro.
The governing party has 48,64% of the vote in the metro and is apparently in talks with the African Independent Congress and the Pan Africanist Congress.
Ekurhuleni Municipality spokesperson Themba Radebe said: "He will be remembered for turning the city around, stabilising it and getting on board management that are capable to ensure that the city has effectively service delivery. Under his leadership, the city has had two clean audits."
