City leaders open dialogue

31 January 2014
Mkhululi Ndamase

THE Nelson Mandela Bay municipal council, organised business and civil society leaders have made up after earlier calls for Local Government MEC Mlibo Qoboshiyane to dissolve the council. At a closed meeting at Pine Lodge resort in Port Elizabeth yesterday senior councillors, business, NGOs, religious, heritage and culture leaders agreed to form a stronger partnership to address the city’s leadership crisis.

The city’s ratepayers’ association, however, was less enthusiastic, with chairman Kobus Gerber saying all they heard at the meeting were excuses.

The talks focused on filling managerial positions in the municipality which deputy mayor Chippa Ngcolomba promised at a media briefing would be done by the end of next month.

Up for discussion was also how the city would partner with the groups to fight rampant corruption which has severely compromised services in the metro.
