South Africa has a new executive mayor for the City of Tshwane. He is not about to do business as usual. Executive Mayor Solly Msimanga’s first order of business is to cut back on costs. And he has already vocalized some important changes.
- He has put a stop to all inaugural parties and catered inaugural events for Tshwane’s new executive‚ and has stopped celebratory dinners and lunches that benefit only politicians.
- He has placed a moratorium on all international travel for politicians and officials of Tshwane. Trips of this nature would only be allowed after applications were made to the mayoral committee. And after being subjected to cost-benefit analyses.
- He has banned the use of blue lights by politicians and government officials in Tshwane, which had been used to avoid sitting in traffic.
- He has proclaimed that no new luxury cars will be bought or leased for politicians‚ and if vehicles currently owned by Tshwane require replacement‚ sensible and low-cost vehicles will be procured.
In a statement, he said:
No new luxury cars will be bought or leased for politicians. And also if vehicles currently owned by Tshwane. It requires replacement‚ sensible and low-cost vehicles will be procured.
I will not allow public money to be spent on luxury cars‚ and while our people struggle for services‚ houses and jobs.
A Hyundai i20 or Toyota Corolla can do the same job for a politician as an expensive sedan.”
