The ANC in Limpopo congratulated Minah Bahula and Pule Shayi, for their election as members of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the South African Local Government Association (SALGA)
SALGA recently concluded its two day conference that was hosted in Cape Town , to vote for its leadership for this term of municipal councils.
Bahula and Shayi are part of 12 new NEC members, who will oversee the affairs of the organisation of South African municipalities for the next 5 years.
“This leadership replaces the executive that was led by Thembi Nkadimeng, another product of the ANC Limpopo, whose meticulous leadership at SALGA saw her becoming the co-President of the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and now serves as deputy minister for COGTA.
“The election of Bahula and Shayi, into this prestigious formation of municipalities, is no coincidence as the two leaders have brought stability in their respective councils in this past term,” said the party spokesperson Donald Selamolela
Under the leadership of Bahula, governance and financial anagement has been stabilized in the Makhuduthamaga Local Municipality (MLM)
The MLM continues to provide decent services to its people, and is always able to spend on its Municipal Infrastructural Grant (MIG).
The two leaders also serve in the ANC regional structures, Bahula is the deputy regional chairperson of Sekhukhune Region and Shayi is the Regional Chairperson of Norman Mashabane Region.
The ANC Limpopo wished the two leaders well during their tenure as SALGA NEC members. The party said it is hopeful that they will use the lessons learnt at that level to impart knowledge to their counterparts in the province, to improve the local government sector.
