An Executive Committee meeting, scheduled to take place today, 20 August at the Durban City Hall, was postponed following the decision by opposition parties to leave the meeting.
This comes amid the announcement last week by the African National Congress (ANC) Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) to redeploy the ANC Executive Committee members, with the announcement of the incumbent members expected to be made soon.
Acting eThekwini Mayor Fawzia Peer has assured residents that today's Executive Committee meeting postponement and the decision by the ANC PEC will not affect the everyday functioning on the City.
"Members of the public can rest assured that service delivery has not been impeded or affected by the postponement of the Executive Committee meeting, with executive members still acting in their respective portfolios until Council processes are followed for them to be redeployed.
"The Council and Administration are still fully functional. In the past seven days, all the subcommittee scheduled meetings did take place. I would like to reassure residents that the transition does not have any negative impact on service delivery.
"On 29 August we have a scheduled Full Council meeting taking place where I am sure decisions will be made. Redeployment is a process and we should allow the ANC space for them to make these decisions," she said.
