ekurhuleni thumb medium85 107ANA reports that the City of Ekurhuleni has had a strong year in terms of job creation, beating all South Africa’s metropolitan municipalities in that respect.  

This was shown by the recent quarterly labour force survey (QLFS) on the employment situation in SA for the second quarter of the 2017 calendar year and final quarter of the financial year, Ekurhuleni spokesperson Themba Gadebe said.  “The report reflects that the annual employment gains observed in six metropolitan municipalities, with the largest increase in Ekurhuleni (98,000), followed by City of Cape Town (63,000) and eThekwini (58,000),” he indicated.  Compared to the same period last year, employment decreases were recorded in two metros, namely the Johannesburg (30,000) and Mangaung (4,000).  Ekurhuleni mayor Mzwandile Masina welcomed the survey, saying the city would continue to create a favourable environment that would create more sustainable jobs through its 10-point plan.
