Metropolitan Municipalities Engage on Councillor Support Models and Systems
Metropolitan municipalities are by nature very large entities with over one hundred ward and proportional representative councillors representing and serving millions of citizens each. These are often large, densely populated urban areas, covering in other instances multiple cities. The 2011 local government elections saw the creation of two new metropolitan municipalities in South Africa - Buffalo City and Mangaung, taking the total number of metropolitan municipalities to eight, spread across five provinces. 

In this context, SALGA Western Cape and MILE partnered to facilitate a knowledge-sharing Metro engagement focussed on sharing notes, experiences and learning from each other on the structures existing in each metropolitan municipality for the councillor support function.  

In welcoming the delegates to the session, SALGA Provincial Executive Officer, Mr Khalil Mullagie said, “Soon after the local government elections in August 2016, we had requests as SALGA from Metro Municipalities on resourcing, capacitating and developing models for Councillor support.“

Multiple informative and thought-provoking presentations were delivered by Metros from Cape Town, Mangaung, Johannesburg, Buffalo City, Ekurhuleni, and Tshwane. These presentations showcased the various support measures extended to Councillors, as well as the challenges encountered.
