The new system of government represents a paradigm shift from the old system since it incorporates a vision of a developmental local government system. The Office of the Chief Whip was established to create synergy and to maintain discipline among Councilors from various Political Parties. The Role of the Chief Whip of Council covers both the political and administrative domains of Council with emphasis on the political aspect.
During the current financial year, the Single Whip has ensured that relationships are constructive and focused on key issues that aimed at improving the lives of the Madibeng residence. In addition, acts as a link between the Speaker of Council, the Executive Mayor and the Municipal Administration. The Single Whip also acts as a Chief Whip of the ruling majority party and is responsible for the whippery forum of the ruling party and has a responsibility to ensure that members of the ruling party speaks in one voice.
The office of the Chief Whip is the nerve centre of the ANC‘s political management system and the engine of cohesion, discipline and accountability of all the public representatives to the structures of the movement and their constituencies.
