tshwane thumb100 News24 reports that Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga has distanced himself from the appointment of Previn Govender as acting city manager.  

Msimanga said on Friday that it was the prerogative of city manager Moeketsi Mosola to name someone to act in his place while he was away, although he would have queried the appointment with the City's council if it had not been in recess when the decision was made.  A report will apparently be tabled to council soon.  Last week the ANC caucus in Tshwane said it was "dismayed, disappointed and horrified that the corrupt DA-led administration has … appointed a fake, unqualified and incompetent chief of emergency Previn Govender to be the acting city manager while the embattled Dr Moeketsi Mosola is on leave".  The ANC's Lesego Makhubela stated:  "Govender has misrepresented his emergency and fire qualifications and the institution in the United Kingdom has indicated to the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) that Govender's qualifications as outlined in his CV are fake."
