LOCAL Government and Public Works Minister, July Moyo, has approved the appointment of Mr Billiat Mlauzi as substantive chief executive officer for Bulilima Rural District Council in Matabeleland South Province.

He replaces Mr John Brown Ncube whose contract was not renewed after serving the mandatory two terms.

In a letter to Bulilima District Development Coordinator, Mr Ones Zogara, which was copied to the Secretary for Provincial Affairs and Devolution Mrs Latiso Maseko-Dlamini, and Bulilima Rural District Council chairperson Mr Zoolake Nyathi, Minister Moyo said the appointment was with immediate effect.

“The Honorable Minister of Local Government and Public Works has in terms of Section 66(1) of the Rural District Council Act Chapter 29:13 approved the appointment of Mr Billiat Mlauzi as the substantive chief executive officer of Bulilima District Council with immediate effect,” reads the letter.

“The appointment of Mr Mlauzi is expected to strengthen the operations of the council given that the local authority has been functioning without a substantive chief executive officer. It is, therefore, critical for all policymakers and members of staff to render him maximum support.”

Mr Nyathi said the move will uplift the RDC as it now has an accounting officer.

“It is true that we received a letter from the ministry confirming his appointment. This development will uplift us as the RDC because someone in an acting capacity does not give his best because he does not know if he will get the job or not,” he said.

“We will now be able to measure and judge him according to his performance. We are looking forward to developing as a district during his tenure as our CEO so that we develop like other districts.”

Bulilima RDC has a strong diaspora community who are involved in various developmental projects, which include the construction of health and educational facilities. The district is largely rural with a poor road network with no single tarred road.

Livestock does well in the district although it does not receive good rains for crop farming.
