No jobs-for-pals in DA-led municipalities

Senior positions, particularly those of Municipal Managers and Heads of Departments, in the DA-led administrations of Johannesburg, Tshwane and Mogale City will not be given to party members, but will be open to transparent recruitment processes ensuring that only the most competent individuals are employed to move these cities forward.

The DA will appoint suitably qualified and competent people into positions who are fit for purpose and can fulfil the responsibilities of the office that they carry. 

It is vital that residents receive quality services, on time and in a dignified manner. This can only be done when competent staff are employed to serve the people of the Metros we govern.

Unlike our predecessors, cadre deployment will not be the order of the day when much work needs to be done to uplift the lives of our people.

All recruitment processes will be open, inclusive and transparent and subject to public scrutiny.
