ActionSA Welcomes the Appointment of Tshwane City Manager

ActionSA welcomes the multi-party coalition’s appointment of Johan Mettler as the City Manager of the City of Tshwane.  

Mettler is a strong candidate with a track record of overseeing and turning around municipalities in difficult financial positions. ActionSA is confident that his skills and experience will be invaluable in the work of ensuring all residents of Tshwane experience positive change under this multi-party coalition.

ActionSA believes that strong municipal performance and clean governance must flow from the leadership of the administration. This is essential for the work of creating a professional civil service that delivers services and roots out corruption.

The advent of the appointment of Mr. Mettler is welcome news to ActionSA as a chance to engage with an experienced accounting officer in respect of key priorities of this multi-party government. Recent reports of unauthorized, fruitless, irregular and wasteful expenditure have revealed the imperative of improving governance procedures in the City, while key service delivery projects require serious attention to bring value to residents of the City.

ActionSA would like to wish the new City Manager all the best in his new role and offer the assurance that he will find ActionSA to be a constructive partner in the work of improving the lives of the residents of our capital city.
