In order to enhance service delivery, the Executive Mayor of the City of Cape Town, Patricia de Lille, announced the new “mini mayors” on Monday.

The four “mini-mayors” are Suzette Little, Eddie Andrews, Anda Ntsdo, and Siya Mamkeli.

According to Mayor de Lille the mini-mayors will ensure that services are rolled out equally regardless of areas being richer or poorer.

We want to modernise local government and to deal with apartheid era spatial planning....we want to be more responsive to the community.

De Lille says they have reduced the number of departments within the city from 11 to 10 as a way of saving money.
