His last working day will be Thursday. Jackie Manche, JRA board chairwoman expressed her sincere thanks to Macozoma. “Skhumbuzo has made a very significant contribution and impact at the JRA since September 2012.
“He has provided outstanding leadership and vision and his sound technical and engineering based approach to bringing the City’s road related infrastructure to a World Class African standard, over the medium term, balanced against the need to accelerate services to disadvantaged communities has been exemplary,” she said.
During his tenure the JRA has moved to a state of solvency and through his leadership JRA achieved its first ever clean (unqualified) audit this financial year.
Macozoma said that his tenure at the JRA has been one of pride in serving the residents of the City.
“I have registered personal successes in this tenure which I will cherish for a long time. I will depart with pride knowing that we have been able to change the fortunes of the JRA, improve its reputation, and restore its position within the civil engineering industry,” Macozoma said.
City manager, Trevor Fowler said they have also acknowledged Macozoma’s resignation and his significant contribution to enhancing service delivery and building a strong organisation.
“The City together with the JRA Board is working on a transitional strategy to ensure the ongoing stability at the JRA and that service delivery continues in an uninterrupted fashion,” he added.
An acting managing director will be announced shortly and a recruitment process for Macozoma’s successor will be initiated as soon as possible.
