In light of recent changes to the mayoral committee’s finance portfolio, and after careful consideration and extensive consultation with relevant stakeholders, Mayor Nkosindiphile Xhakaza is pleased to announce the appointment of Dlabathi as the Finance MMC.

“Alderman Dlabathi brings strategic acumen and extensive expertise in local government practice to this role, having served as the whip of council since 2016,” said Xhakaza.

His efforts focused on ensuring the financial viability of municipalities and supporting the drive for good governance, which is critical for improving cash flow liquidity and the overall financial health of local governments.

“I am confident his appointment will significantly strengthen our institutional capacity, supporting our efforts to enhance financial sustainability and optimise revenue enhancement in the city,” said Xhakaza.
