nelsonmandelabayHeraldLive reports that the recent appointment of a director in acting Nelson Mandela Bay city boss Johann Mettler’s office is being challenged by a former senior manager, who believes the recruitment process was unlawful.  

Former metro director of policy, strategy and research Lineo Nkanjeni wants to know why she was not even shortlisted when she meets all the requirements for the job.  The city appointed former SA Local Government Association (Salga) programme manager Nomawethu Xali in April.  Nkanjeni, who is now a general manager in the Eastern Cape Department of Local Government and Traditional Affairs, is heading to the Port Elizabeth Labour Court to have Xali’s appointment reviewed.
