The Minister of Urban and Rural Development, Peya Mushelenga, suspended all Rehoboth Town Councillors on Thursday.
Deputy Minister, Deputy Minister Derek Classen, delivered the message to the Councillors and staff.
The suspension is because of ongoing mismanagement, poor service delivery and lack of accountability in the town council as well as the inability of the council to implement directives from the ministry.
Rehoboth Town Council employees on Thursday again demonstrated, demanding a response to a petition handed to their management during a strike, two weeks ago.
Natalia !Goagoses from the ministry was appointed to run the affairs of the council, assisted by the chief executive officer, Christoph /Uirab, who was on suspension. /Uirab is expected to assume duty on Friday.
