Jabu joined the Kouga Municipality in October 2004 when he was appointed as the Director of Social/Economic Development & HR. He made a positive contribution to the Municipality in his quiet and unassuming manner.
Jabu was also appointed as the acting Director of Strategic Services and also took the mantle of Acting Municipal Manager when required to do so by the Council.
Elza van Lingen, the leader of the DA in Kouga, extended her condolences to the family of Jabu. “Our hearts go out to Jabu’s family and they are in our prayers at this time. We will miss him and appreciate all he did for us in Kouga”, said van Lingen.
