Bhanga rolls up his sleeves to restore Bay
THE newly elected mayor of the Nelson Mandela Bay metro has compiled a priority list to repair a "broken city".
Bhanga indicated in a press conference on Saturday that he would immediately roll up his sleeves and jump to work. First on the agenda is the rise in Covid-19 infections.
Pres. Cyril Ramaphosa declared the metro a hotspot last week.
Bhanga says they must do everything possible to stop the spread of the virus. He wants awareness campaigns and the law enforcement of regulations to be sharpened immediately.
"Today is the beginning of a new chapter, a positive chapter, in which we are moving politics aside and focusing on restoring Nelson Mandela Bay," he said.
"We have done it before and we can do it again. However, I want to make it clear from the outset that it is not going to be easy."
Bhanga also promised to eradicate corruption and bring back basic service delivery while also restoring law and order.
Among his other priorities will be to address the challenges of the drought, housing backlogs and administrative challenges. - Algoa FM
