The Central Karoo District municipality in the Western Cape has a new mayor following Patriotic Alliance (PA) leader Gayton McKenzie’s election on Monday.
McKenzie was elected as the municipality’s mayor, unopposed, during a council meeting after he recently accepted his nomination.

He replaces councillor Mitchell Smith.
“I solemnly promise to perform my functions as a councillor of the Central Karoo District municipality to the best of my abilities,” McKenzie said while he was sworn in.
