PRETORIA - Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga has given his mayoral committee 100 days to produce tangible change within the municipality.

Msimanga appointed his 10-person team last week, which includes two members from the ACDP and Freedom Front Plus.

The Democratic Alliance was voted in as the governing party in Tshwane and Johannesburg with support from the Economic Freedom Fighters.

Msimanga says he's instructed his MMCs to turn around problematic municipal departments to focus on service delivery.

"I've given them to make sure we sort these departments out and we get our officials within the relevant departments to understand the time for blasé attitudes is coming to an end."

He's set a strict deadline.

"I want in the first 100 days to see some differences in the departments that they are going to be heading."

The city has also embarked on the process of appointing a new city manager after the resignation of Jason Ngobeni.
