BREAKING: VAAL TRIANGLE - Emfuleni Local Municipality’s Executive Mayor Jacob Khawe has reportedly put in his official resignation. Khawe, who is also the Gauteng ANC's provincial secretary, has been at loggerheads with the embattled ANC Sedibeng regional executive committee (REC), which has been demanding that he step down. News24 reports a source close to the matter, who requested to remain anonymous, said the formalities of the resignation had been completed. Last week, hetold News24 "there will be no Christmas where Jacob Khawe is the mayor of Emfuleni". He said he would resign before December 16. However, Khawe insisted he needed to lead the finalisation of outstanding reports before leaving office. News24 reports Khawe previously said the financial recovery plan by Treasury is not ready; the signing off of Section 56 employees is not ready; both of those are done by national and provincial governments. He then said the Hawks have not given him feedback, only questions.
