JOHANNESBURG - Tshwane Mayor Randall Williams has announced the names of the members of his mayoral committee following weeks of tense negotiations between political parties.

The multi-party agreement reached has seen the inclusion of councillors from ActionSA and the Freedom Front Plus, similar to the approach adopted in Joburg on Monday.

Democratic Alliance (DA) councillors are, however, in charge of the key economic posts, with Peter Sutton at finance and Phillip Nel at utilities. Dikeledi Selowa returns to the committee, this time as roads and transport MMC, ActionSA’s Andre le Roux will be responsible for economic development and spatial planning.

Williams said that the only way the coalition government would succeed was by putting aside their political differences.

"This team has been chosen after careful consideration as we take these appointments very seriously. We will need to hit the ground running as there is much work that needs to be done. Furthermore, I'd like to assure our residents that I will hold the team to the highest standards as this administration is truly committed to the principles of clean governance," Williams said.
