New City Manager unanimously endorsed
​EThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede, centre, extended a warm
welcome to the recently appointed City Manager Sipho Nzuza,

meeting held on 11 May. The entire Executive Committee,
including Deputy Mayor Fawzia Peer, pictured on the left,
welcomed Nzuza and reaffi rmed their commitment to working
with him to take eThekwini to greater heights.

CITY Manager, Sipho Nzuza, who started his tenure at the beginning of the month, will focus on expediting service delivery, increasing tourism and investment promotion while capitalising on Durban being a port City.

Attaining a clean audit outcome is also his top priority. He has also given his assurance to accelerate rural development, endorsing the call made by Inkosi Simingaye Mlaba of prioritising rural areas. Nzuza said the City comprises 60 percent of rural land which will also be prioritised for development.

Nzuza outlined his plans to take eThekwini to greater heights during a special Executive Committee meeting held on 11 May, to formerly welcome him to the City. Nzuza said he has been attending budget and Integrated Development Plan road show meetings to better understand the needs of residents. “The demands from residents are reasonable, they just want service delivery and we need to deliver on this,” he said.

He intends to strengthen tourism and do more to attract business to the City. “Durban has all the potential. The port in Durban is a huge asset and is the busiest in sub-Saharan Africa. I will ensure that we capitalise on this.” He was warmly welcomed by the Executive Committee, including eThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede and members of the opposition parties.

You are a man of integrity. You are not a stranger to this City as you also sat on the audit committee. Your experience working at the ports will benefit us as a port City and will ensure we become a better City,” said Mayor Gumede. Mondli Mthembu, Chairperson of the Human Settlements and Infrastructure Committee said Nzuza’s appointment was unanimous. Nzuza thanked everyone for the warm welcome.
