Cllr Badroodien steps down from Mayco pending outcome of Disciplinary Committee<p>I have been informed by the Speaker's Office that Councillor Zahid Badroodien is to face a Council disciplinary committee to answer charges relating to the alleged tampering of an electricity meter at a property owned by him.</p><p>This is a Council matter being dealt with by the Speaker's Office. I am therefore not at liberty to comment on the charges against Councillor Badroodien, nor the disciplinary process to be followed. </p><p>Councillor Badroodien has however written to me to request that he step down from his position as Mayoral Committee Member for Water and Sanitation pending the finalisation of the disciplinary hearing. I have accepted his request. It is important for every member of the Mayoral Committee to be fully focused on their work.</p><p>In the interim, Cllr Siseko Mbandezi, MayCo Member for Finance, has agreed to assume responsibility for the Water and Sanitation portfolio on the Mayoral Committee. I am confident that Councillor Mbandezi will do an excellent job until such a time as Councillor Badroodien has successfully answered this case.</p><p>I would like to thank Councillor Badroodien for the contribution he has made to Water and Sanitation since his appointment in November 2021. I look forward to a fair and speedy resolution of this matter, in the best interests of all Cape Town residents. <br><br>Further enquiries can be addressed to the speaker's office.</p><p><br><strong>End </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><br></p>2022-09-27T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891d;GP0|#904f8ac3-ad18-4896-a9a8-86feb1d4a1b7;L0|#0904f8ac3-ad18-4896-a9a8-86feb1d4a1b7|StatementsGP0|#a0b7261a-a4a6-42a4-bddf-4cf6b0fa7950;L0|#0a0b7261a-a4a6-42a4-bddf-4cf6b0fa7950|mayco member;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#633591e2-ed41-4816-9750-3d5f5090deda;L0|#0633591e2-ed41-4816-9750-3d5f5090deda|illegal activity10
