After it had received awards and accolades for good administration as one of the country’s top municipalities, it came as no surprise that Khunjuzwa Kekana was re-elected mayor of Sarah Baartman District Municipality yesterday.
Although she could boast that her district municipality was a shining example of clean governance, Kekana vowed to work hard to ensure that all staff adhered to supply chain laws.
Yesterday, she was re-elected unopposed, with Nonkqubela Peters as council speaker, at the first council meeting in Addo.
Under Kekana’s leadership, the municipality had two consecutive clean audits from the auditor-general.
The municipality has won various awards for clean governance and has also been recognised by ANC leader Jacob Zuma as the second-best ANCrun municipality in the country.
In her acceptance speech, Kekana made it clear that although the books had been given a clean bill of health for years, this did not mean officials must rest.
