The African Independent Congress (AIC) councillor Malindi is the third executive mayor of Metsimaholo to be elected withinthree years.

A coalition government in South Africa has proven to be a nightmare as political parties find it challenging to work together due to their ideological differences.

Malindi was elected unopposed during a special council sitting at the Harry Gwala Multipurpose Centre, in Zamdela at Sasolburg.

He was nominated by the African Transformation Movement (ATM) and the nomination was seconded by the ANC.

The municipal spokesperson Dr Gino Alberts confirmed all political parties, including ANC, DA, EFF, AIC, ATM, MCA, FFP, represented in the council were present during Wednesday’s council sitting.

His election comes after the ANC supported by the EFFremoved DA’s councillor Jeff Zwane through a motion of no confidence on 01 August 2023.

The motion brought by the ANC was supported by 31 councillors. The DA councillors led by their national and provincial leaders, Helen Zille and Dr Roy Jankielsohn staged a walked out during the meeting.

Zwane has been accused of corruption, fraud, money laundering on procurement of the security services rendered by security company Isidingo.

Meanwhile, five senior officials, that includes Chief Financial Officer, Technical Director, Director of Planning and LED, and Social Services of Metsimaholo have been suspended following the allegations of involvement in allegedly appointing a security tender.
