Cape Town - Acting Knysna mayor Aubrey Tsengwa has selected an all but one ANC mayoral committee (mayco) to lead the municipality after the previous leadership was dissolved following the firing of former mayor Mark Willemse as DA member.
Tsengwa, who was Willemse’s deputy took over from him after the DA stripped him of his party membership on September 30. This followed the outcome of a vote of no confidence in him by his own caucus.
Tsengwa’s mayco is made of fellow ANC councillors Claudine Croutz, the mayco member governance and economic development and finance committees; Thando Matika, for integrated human settlements and technical services committees; and Mncedisi Skosana, for the planning and development committee.
Independent party Knysna Unity Congress councillor Monwabisi Salaze, who served under Willemse as community services committee mayco member, continues in this role.
Tsengwa said on Wednesday that his Mayco was stepping in temporarily to bring stability.
