Ekurhuleni Issues: The office of the Executive Mayor in Ekurhuleni notes the social media allegations against MMC for Human Settlements, Lesiba Mpya, plus the Chief of Staff, Reckson Hasani. The allegations are around the alleged usage of the City of Ekurhuleni-issued credit cards at the ANC celebrations this past weekend (January 8), to pay a bill. According to mayoral spokesperson Gugu Ndima, the allegations are unfortunate as Ekurhuleni doesn’t have credit cards for any executive or staff member. “As the City of Ekurhuleni, we uphold the firm belief that every public servant must act and conduct themselves in a responsible manner,” said Ndima.
This message was affirmed in the January 8 statement. The statement further said: “We regret the sensationalism created by false allegations around the public representatives of the City of Ekurhuleni. “As the City, we remain focused on delivering services to our people and ensuring that we strive towards unity – and delivering on our mandate and social contract with the people of Ekurhuleni.”
