DURBAN - Outgoing Deputy Mayor Belinda Scott says she and the leadership have helped the troubled municipality. 

She was among the leaders brought in by the ANC to stabilise the municipality. 

Scott is resigning from her post in the city to pursue other interests.

She said: “I really do believe that there is much greater coherence and signage between the different line departments of the municipality who I found, were speaking in silos so there's a much greater signage between them but also there is a much greater level of transparency, efficiency and accountability.

"Decisions are not just left to officials, there is now a very clear line of oversight by the political principals and by the political leadership of the city” 

Scott joined the city in 2019 replacing the then leadership led by former mayor Zandile Gumede.
