Mayor Morero announces his MMCs

The triple challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality will be tackled by this new leadership

The Executive Mayor of the City of Johannesburg, Sello Dada Morero, has vowed to put the people of Johannesburg at the centre of development and service delivery.

Morero was speaking during the swearing-in ceremony of Members of the Mayoral Committee (MMCs) by Gauteng Regional Court President Modibedi Djaje at the Constance Bapela Council Chamber in Braamfontein on October 10.

“It has dawned on us that the responsibility is big. This responsibility is not easy to comprehend because the journey of the local government has undergone a long and complex period.

“Leading society requires leadership that understands where it is coming from and where it is going. Our task is the creation of a non-racial democratic society,” said the executive mayor.

He further emphasised that “our enemy is not our political opponents, but the triple challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality.”

Morero also stated that the new political leadership was in the business of building better communities and this will be achieved through:

• Creating economic growth, job creation and reducing poverty

• Creating support for the informal economy

• Supporting the growth of small, micro and medium enterprises

• Hundred percent implementation of the Green Economy programme

• Creating sustainable human settlements

• Building a smart city that transforms the lives of residents

• Continued financial sustainability of the City

• Protecting the environment

• Creating a safe City

• Ensuring constant communication that encourages public participation

On October 8, Morero announced a multi-party team of MMCs who will head up the following portfolios:

• Finance – Clr Margaret Arnolds

• Group Corporate and Shared Services – Clr Loyiso Masuku

• Transport – Clr Ashley Sauls I

• Development Planning – Clr Thapelo Amad
