Jordaan’s inauguration next week

BY CHARL BOSCH - MAY 22, 2015

It has been reported that newly elected Nelson Mandela Bay Executive Mayor, Danny Jordaan, will officially take-up office next week after it was earlier reported that he would be inaugurated today.

The announcement comes after former mayor, Benson Fihla, handed-in his resignation late yesterday afternoon after the South African Football Association (SAFA) boss was named as his replacement on Monday.

Eyewitness News reported ANC Provincial Secretary, Oscar Mabuyane, as saying that the municipality would introduce three councillors on Friday, while the reshuffled council will hold its first sitting next Wednesday. The names of the new councillors were not disclosed.
