The Buffalo City Council has appointed Zukisa Faku as the Executive Mayor of Buffalo City Municipality.
With years as a teacher and a political activist under her belt, Buffalo City’s new executive mayor,Faku, is ready and able to lead the municipality.
Faku is no stranger to leadership. She has been involved in politics since her school days, and then throughout her working life as a teacher and leader.
Born in the Tsolo area of Duncan Village in East London in 1965, Faku was only five years old when her family was relocated to Mdantsane, some 25 kilometres from the city centre, under the notorious apartheid policy of forced removals.
