MAYOR WELCOMES NEW MUNICIPAL MANAGER
Jozini Municipality finally has a father. These were words of Jozini Mayor, His Worship Councillor DP Mabika, after introducing the newly appointed Municipal Manager, Mr Jaconia Mngomezulu, at a staff meeting held early on the morning of 5 August 2019.
The Jozini Local Municipality welcomed Mngomezulu who resumed his duties on the 1st of August 2019.
The Mayor expressed his gratefulness openly, saying that it was about time the municipality found lasting stability and progress.
I have no doubt that we will work well with you and I assure you that youll receive all the necessary support while youre leading the administration of the institution, Mayor Mabika said.
Mngomezulu, a former Mtubatuba Municipal Manager, is set to be adequately armed with both relevant qualifications and experience to lead the municipality into the future for the coming five years. His credentials include a Post Graduate Diploma in Governance and Political Transformation, a Bachelor of Public Administration Honours, a certificate in Programme Management Development for Municipal Finance, and a certificate in Municipal Finance Management.
He is not new to the institution, as he has previously worked at Jozini Municipality as a Senior Administrative Officer, and as an Executive Director for Corporate and Community Services.
Im excited to be back here, joining this ship, now as municipal manager, said Mngomezulu.
During his response address, he briefly tabled out his plans for the municipality and touched on some campaigns and projects that need to be prioritised.
He further urged for support from both, the Council and employees, while also firmly stating that employees should revisit their job descriptions, so to be reminded what is expected from each individual.
