“The meetings are very important as we will be receiving challenges of human settlements directly from the community and getting new ideas directly from the community on how best can we service them.

“The meetings will assist us in terms of knowing how many people are in need of residential sites, business sites and agricultural land,” Motaung said.

Motaung confirmed that the meetings will be used to record the numbers of how many residents are in need of RDP houses.

This will also assist the municipality to record a number of unfinished RDP houses and informal settlement in the area.

“How many people are in need of title deeds. How many people still living under asbestos  roofing. Areas that need rezoning and formalisation,” said Motaung.

The Human Settlement meetings comes after newly elected executive mayor and African Independent Congress (AIC) Councillor Jack Malindi appointed new Members of Mayoral Committee (MMCs).  

The Democratic Alliance (DA) Councillor Jeff Zwane was removed again from office through a vote of no confidence on Friday, 06 October 2023.

Zwane was removed during a special council No.4 of 2023/2024 meeting, which was held at the Council Chambers (Civic Centre, Sasolburg).

The EFF motion of no confidence against Zwane was supported by 22 councillors against 12  councillors opposing the motion, and 8 ballot papers were spoilt.

At least 42 municipal councillors attended the special meeting to vote through a secret ballot.

“The EFF welcomes the decisive decision by the MetsimaholoLocal Municipality Council to remove corrupt DA Councillor Mr Jeff Zwane as the Executive Mayor of Metsimaholofollowing the motion of no confidence tabled by EFF.

“The Municipality has been under a dark cloud under Zwane’sleadership and the council has heeded the call from the EFF to uproot all forms of corruption and incompetence that was exhibited by Zwane.”
