The municipality's spokesperson, France Zama says Sithole was brought in after they'd asked COGTA for assistance. This was when their municipal manager went on leave. 

"At the time when the council had resolved to quest COGTA to assign someone to assist the municipality, it was the time when the incumbent municipal manager, had taken sick leave and currently on sick leave. We are not under administration. I think that that is just wishful thinking," he says.
