On Monday, 10 June 2019, the Executive Mayor of Mkhondo, Mr Vusi Motha, held a media briefing to put to rest any rumours that he might be leaving his post.
This Executive Mayor briefing was also attended by Municipal Manager Maqhawe Kunene Communications Manager Robert Kubheka and various reporters representing the media outlets of Mkhondo.
With the 2019 national elections, many rumours were spread about our Mayor possibly leaving Mkhondo to become a District Mayor. He has confirmed that although he was being considered for the position, he will not be leaving Mkhondo until his term has ended.
This false gossip was spread by someone who did not have their facts straight.
Many meetings were held with members of the ANC, to consider the advantages and disadvantages of Mayor Motha leaving Mkhondo. It was concluded that to maintain stability in our Local Municipality, he would keep his current position.
The Executive Mayor is excited to get back to his everyday tasks without having to worry about the hearsay and we look forward to still have him with us for the rest of his term.
