It is with a sense of sadness to learn of the passing of Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s Councillor Ncediso Captain of Ward 17 in New Brighton. Cllr Captain was instrumental in championing several successful community developments programs in his ward, in partnership with the MBDA. At the time of his passing, Cllr Captain was leading and facilitating the New Brighton Precinct Development Plan, a visionary programme that aims to unleash the cultural, heritage, and economic potential of New Brighton. On behalf of the MBDA Board, Management and Employees, I send our deepest condolences to his family, community, fellow councillors and his political party, the African National Congress. May his soul rest in peace.
