JOHANNESBURG - Johannesburg's Transport MMC Kenny Kunene has been appointed as the City's acting mayor for the next two days, while Kabelo Gwamanda is out of town.
Kunene's appointment is effective from Sunday until Monday as Gwamanda is expected back in the city on Tuesday.
Kunene said he was elected as he is part of the Mayoral Committee in the city and understands what is required to keep the city running.
He said he is not only humbled by the appointment but he believes he is up for the task.
"It's not a difficult task because I am part of the mayoral committee, and we work well with the mayor. I understand the needs that are there - we have mayoral committees. So, I am just warming up the seat until the honourable mayor is back."
