IN a move that is expected to strengthen oversight over the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s finances, chairman of the municipal public accounts committee Jimmy Tutu has been appointed as a full-time councillor.
This comes after it was promulgated into law by Eastern Cape MEC for Local Government Mlibo Qoboshiyane in January.
The Bay council approved the decision at a full council meeting on Thursday.
As a full-time councillor, Tutu will now be able to have an office with support staff to assist him in ensuring the municipality practises good governance.
