Here is your new Mayco, Cape Town

Cape Town’s newly-elected mayor, Dan Plato, has announced the new members of his Mayoral Committee (Mayco) while retaining only two members of the old Mayco. Many Capetonians hope that the new Mayco will bring a more united Cape Town, and that it will work towards better and more efficient service delivery.

“It is with great pleasure that I announce today a new, united, diverse, and energised mayoral committee to serve and take the City of Cape Town and its residents forward,” Plato said in a statement on Sunday.

“The members I have chosen to serve on this committee have demonstrated their ability to carry out their duties with excellence, their commitment to work together as a united council, and their passion to serve the people of this city,” he added.


The new mayoral committee members:

Deputy Mayor – Ian Neilson

Assets and Facilities – James Vos

Corporate Services – Sharon Cottle

Informal Settlements, Water and Waste Services and Energy – Xanthea Limberg

Social Services, Safety and Security – JP Smith

Transport and Urban Development Authority – Felicity Purchase

Area East – Phindile Maxiti

Finance – Marian Nieuwoudt

Area South – Zahid Badroodien

Area Central – Malusi Booi

Area North – Grant Twigg

The Mayco’s organisational development and transformation plan is still to be reviewed, and will likely result in a different structure. The plan will be likely finalised at the next council meeting.

“I would like to thank the former Mayco members for their service, and trust that they will continue to support this administration with the same energy and dedication that they have shown before,” Plato said. “I would also like to wish the new mayco well and am looking forward to working with them in addressing the challenges that lie ahead, and in ensuring that we deliver the most effective and efficient service delivery for all.”
