Administrator to be in charge of City of Tshwane plans to curb COVID-19

The Gauteng MEC for Cooperative Governance Lebogang Maile says they will appoint an administrator to run the City of Tshwane immediately.

On Thursday, the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) formally backed the decision by the Gauteng government to put the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality under administration.

Maile says all managers in the city have to enforce the regulations announced by the national government to curb the spread of COVID-19.
