THE Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality safety and security boss Shane Brown wants the metro to fork out R200 000 for 14 people to take a five-day fact-finding trip to Gauteng. The trip will be used to gather information on how the Johannesburg, Tshwane and Ekurhuleni municipalities operate their metro police forces.
The report, compiled by Brown, says members should include two ANC councillors and one DA councillor, four SA Municipal Workers’ Union representatives, two Independent Municipal and Allied Trade Union representatives, two safety and security officials, one budget and treasury official and two drivers.
The trip, meant to have started on Monday, has been delayed until it gets the nod from acting city manager Mpilo Mbambisa.
