Malusi Booi removed from Mayoral Committtee – GHL

Cape Town mayor says matters under investigation are serious enough to warrant such a step

Change to Mayoral Committee

23 March 2023  

‘I have received an updated briefing from the SAPS regarding their investigation, and on this basis, have decided to remove Councillor Malusi Booi from his position on the Mayoral Committee with immediate effect. While Councillor Booi has not been charged, the matters under investigation are to my mind serious enough to warrant immediate action to protect the integrity of our government. I have further assured the SAPS of the City’s full support in the ongoing investigation. The City has a zero tolerance approach to fraud and corruption and I will not hesitate to act in the interests of good governance.'

'In the interim, Alderman James Vos continues as Acting Mayco Member for Human Settlements,’ said Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis.
