SALGA appoints Executive Mayor of Lejweleputswa District Municipality Executive Mayor Sebenzile Ngangelizwe as its Acting President




Posted: 22 September 2021

The South African Local Government Association (SALGA) has appointed its two Deputy Presidents to share the responsibility of leading the organization towards the upcoming local government elections and the elective SALGA National Conference. This follows a vacancy created by the departure of former Executive Mayor Thembi Nkadimeng, who was recently appointed as the Deputy Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA).

Executive Mayor Sebenzile Ngangelizwe has been appointed as its Acting President until the Local Government Elections, with Mayor Deon De Vos to take over the reign until the SALGA elective National Conference.

Cllr Sebenzile Ngangelizwe, served as one of two Deputy Presidents of the SALGA National Executive Committee since 2016. He brings along a wealth of local government experience and has a full grasp of the complex challenges facing local government, including what needs to be done to make local government work for the people and communities to achieve its the developmental agenda.

Cllr Ngangelizwe is no stranger to SALGA's leadership echelons; from 2008 - 2016, he successfully led SALGA Free State as the Provincial Chairperson. During those years, he served as Executive Mayor of Lejweleputswa District Municipality until April 2010. Later in that year, he was redeployed to serve as the Executive Mayor of Matjhabeng Local Municipality until July 2016.

During his tenure as the executive political head at Lejweleputswa, he is attributed for bringing stability and turning the municipality around from attaining qualified audit reports to an unqualified audit report for the 2008/2009 financial year.

Following the 2016 municipal elections, Cllr Ngangelizwe returned to Lejweleputswa District Municipality where he is still serving as the Executive Mayor.
SALGA wishes Cllr Ngangelizwe well as he leads the organization and the sector prepare for the transition towards the 5th term of local government.
