NELSON Mandela Bay mayor Zanoxolo Wayile is expected to recommend today that four top acting officials in the municipality be replaced.
However, it is unclear who will take over from acting executive directors Shane Brown (safety and security), Peter Neilson (electricity and energy), Selwyn Thys (budget and treasury), and Walter Shaidi (infrastructure and engineering).
All have passed the six-month maximum period allowed in temporary posts.They will be absorbed into departments until permanent executives are appointed. It is said these appointments will only be made when the municipal manager post has been filled. All eyes will be on Wayile to see if he replaces them with directors from their departments or with general managers seconded by Local Government MEC Mlibo Qoboshiyane in November. One acting executive director said Wayile had informed them they would be replaced.
