The Kouga Municipality has appointed formed Coega Development Corporation (CDC) Procurement Manager, Lundi Landu, as new Supply Chain Manager for the Kouga region.
Before his position at the CDC he carried the title of Manager: Supply-Chain Management and Assets at Blue Crane Municipality. Mr Landu also did a stint at Bitou Municipality and the Sarah Baartman District Municipality (formerly Cacadu).
Kouga Mayor, Elze van Lingen, had this to say about the new appointment: "It is good to have a manager of this calibre heading our Supply-Chain office.
“We have been working on fast-tracking procurement without compromising compliance and a strong team at our Supply Chain office is central to achieving this.
“Council is pleased with the appointment and wish Mr Landu every success at Kouga.”
Van Lingen, in her State of the Municipality Address, motivated local businesses to register with the municipality's supply chain office as potential service providers or suppliers.
“Increasing how much business we do locally is important,” she said.
“The good news is that many businesses that stopped doing business with the municipality years ago because they were not being paid, have started re-registering on the database, a clear sign that confidence is being restored.”
