Newly elected Cape Town Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis has announced a new look mayoral committee (mayco) on Monday.

Hill-Lewis says members of his new mayco will each sign a performance contract with him to keep them accountable, reports Eyewitness News journalist Kevin Brandt.

The mayor says his focus areas will be reducing crime, creating a reliable transport system, and improving basic services for all in the city.

Dr. Zahid Badroodien takes over from Xanthea Limberg as the new mayco member for water and waste. He previously held the portfolio of community services and health.

The new mayco member for community services and health is Patricia van der Ross and Siseko Mbandezi will now take over the finance committee.

Deputy mayor Eddie Andrews will take up the spatial planning and environment portfolio while energy and climate change will fall under Beverley van Reenen.

Grant Twigg will remain the mayco member for urban management and JP Smith will continue serving in the safety and security role.

Theresa Uys will be at the helm of corporate services, James Vos will remain the mayco member for economic opportunities and Rob Quintas stays on in the transport portfolio.
