IFP Welcomes the Leadership Changes
in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro

13 March 2013          

The IFP welcomes the decision taken by the ANC in finally applying itself to the notoriously dysfunctional Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality. 

IFP Spokesperson on Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Mr Peter Smith, MP, said that, "the removal of Zanoxolo Wayile as Mayor and the resignation of regional chairperson Nceba Faku, might, if the residents of the sorely-tested municipality are lucky, result in something positive". 

He called on the MEC for Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs in the Eastern Cape, Mr Mlibo Qoboshiyane to ensure that the situation at the municipality is not one of business-as-usual and to take steps to ensure that functional governance is prioritised.
