Interviews are underway for a new manager of the municipality.


The manager of the Lekwa local municipality in the Gert Sibande district says he’s now an unemployed man and “time will tell” as to what he will do next.

Linda Tshabalala’s term as the manager of the Lekwa municipality in Standerton came to an end this week on 31 July 2017.

He said time will tell where he goes now.

“As what I’ll do next I think time will tell. Time will tell. My home is the ANC,” he said over the phone.

“I’d like to thank the people of Standerton for the opportunity. I had a great experience as the manager. I thank the ANC, the administration and business. [It] Was a great experience,” Tshabalala said on Tuesday.

He said now he is like the millions of others who are unemployed.

He was appointed the manager of the municipality in 2012.

The municipality’s Thobeka Mtshiselwa told 013NEWS late on Tuesday that the municipal manager post was already advertised.

“We are currently busy with interviews. Interviews started last week,” she said.
