The Johannesburg Council’s coalition has reinstated Floyd Brink as the City Manager, asserting that this decision addresses the concerns highlighted by the High Court, as per Jacaranda FM.
The move follows a High Court ruling three weeks ago, declaring Brink’s initial appointment unconstitutional, unlawful, and invalid. Brink assumed the position in February under former Mayor Thapelo Amad’s administration, with the DA challenging the appointment in May, arguing that Brink did not meet the minimum job specifications requiring 10 years of senior management experience.
In response, City of Johannesburg Mayor Kabelo Gwamanda announced the re-adoption of the report, highlighting the City’s belief in the court’s failure to consider valid legal arguments impartially. Gwamanda added that the Council’s decision makes moot the intention to petition the Supreme Court of Appeal, expressing confidence in Brink’s ability to contribute to administrative stability and uninterrupted service delivery.
