Otjiwarongo Municipality appoints Mwayekange as acting CEO

The Otjiwarongo Municipality on Tuesday announced the appointment of Erickson Mwayekange as acting chief executive officer (CEO) for a period of three months.

Otjiwarongo Mayor Gottlieb Shivute in an interview with Nampa said Mwayekange’s appointment follows the resignation of Moses Matyayi last month. Matyayi has been appointed CEO of the City of Windhoek.

Mwayekange is the Strategic Executive for Community Development Services at the Otjiwarongo Municipality.

“Mwayekange’s appointment is effective from 01 August 2023 until November this year, or until a substantive CEO is appointed by the management committee of the municipality on a permanent basis,” Shivute said.

He further stated that the recruitment process for the new CEO has started and is still in the preliminary stages.
