Mongameli Bobani is the new mayor of the Nelson Mandela Bay metropolitan, and boy has he kicked things off.
The new mayor spoke at an Integrated Development Plan (IDP) meeting at the Nangoza Jebe Hall in New Brighton.
Bobani vows to commit 100% Nelson Mandela Bay budget to townships
He did not mince his words about what he and his team would handle the municipality’s budget. Even scarier is the plans he had for more affluent areas in the metro.
Sowetan Live reported that
The new political leadership in Nelson Mandela Bay will channel the entire budget for the next financial year to its townships and northern areas.
Should residents in more affluent areas report a sewerage problem‚ head of infrastructure and engineering Andile Lungisa will be told to ignore it.
