November 10, 2021 – The GPM wants to extend a warm welcome to Geordin Hill-Lewis, recently appointed as the new mayor of Cape Town, South Africa.

The youngest mayor of the city, Mr. Hill-Lewis was elected with the 58,22% of votes. He has a BCom in Politics, Philosophy and Economics (Honours) from the University of Cape Town, and a Master’s in Economic Policy: Finance from the University of London.

He has promised to do more in Cape Town to protect residents from the consequences of failing basic services at a national level in electricity, safety and policing, in public transport, as well as improving the lives of the poorest of the poor in the city: “We want Cape Town to be a city of hope in South Africa that every person can be proud of, and we want to earn the faith and trust that our voters have shown us on Monday.”
