JOHANNESBURG – The City of Ekurhuleni has appointed Kagiso Lerutla as its new group chief financial officer, the city said in a statement.

Leurtla will assist the accounting officer to carry out her financial management responsibilities, in areas ranging from budget preparation to financial reporting and the development and maintenance of internal control policies and procedures, the city said.
