Female mayors to occupy 13 positions in the Free State


Of the 23 newly elected mayors that are based across the Free State, the ANC in the province has elected 13 female mayors.

The party announced on Thursday during a media briefing that among these 23 mayors, 5 are quite young.

The briefing took place at the ANC Provincial Offices at the Kaiser Sebothelo Building in Bloemfontein.

ANC’s provincial secretary, William Bulwane, says the election is to ascertain and enable the ANC to implement their radical socio-economic transformation.

“We are briefing the media about the mayors, speakers and chief whips of councils that we have elected on 15 August at an extended meeting in Parys. We decided to introduce them to the entire province so that they are known by our communities because they have been appointed by different councils. We can also call this a Know Your Mayor campaign.”
