Aldermen in their regalia.

An honour of the highest order for councillors, Alderman, is a title bestowed by council through its Conferment of Civic Honours policy.

Sphelele Nxele spokesperson for the office of the speaker said this policy outlines a stringent qualifying criterion that includes an unbroken record of serving as an Ekurhuleni councillor, determined by an accumulative point system.

“Upon conferment, a councillor may retain its use post-tenure.

“Recognising and honouring those consistently entrusted to lead their communities is a significant aspect of nation-building.

“It is a reflection of a relationship founded on the principles of Batho Pele – putting people first.

“The concept of Alderman exists at local government level in many jurisdictions internationally and locally,” she said.

Council also acknowledged and congratulated members of the Ekurhuleni Junior City Council (JCC) who performed outstandingly in their matric exams.

Alderman Patricia Kumalo, speaker of council, who continues to champion the JCC initiative through her office said it’s an honour to have been part of grooming young people.

“Fulfilling their Junior City Council duties while staying focused at school and achieving superb results is indeed an excellent achievement,” she said.
