A borough councillor in King Williamstown in the 1890s. #southafrica

My great grandfather Franz GINSBERG arrived in South
Africa >from Germany in 1880, and by 1892 was serving
as a Borough Councillor in King Williamstown.

What qualifications would have been required in the
1880s - 1890s to be eligible for election as a Borough
Councillor? Would a candidate have to have been
naturalised, and /or granted
Burghership?
