Ndebele: KZN a model province

2011-05-18 12:24

Pietermaritzburg - KwaZulu-Natal had moved from a violent past to become a model province characterised by development, former premier Sbu Ndebele after casting his vote near Wartburg, outside Pietermaritzburg, at 09:30 on Wednesday.

He was accompanied by his wife, Zama, who was on clutches following a nasty slip.

"Everyone is now looking at the province in terms of how you can deal with the past and also foster reconciliation and development, the province is a reflection of the maturity of our democracy", said Ndebele.

He cautioned against unrealistic expectations of the government and criticism that a lot of promises were made by politicians and government.

"When a promise is made, it is not about the past, but about the future. The future is unpredictable and people should be mindful of that before criticising government. Delivery is a process."

Ndebele, who is Transport Minister, said he expected a huge turnout in the ward, which he said was a model of non-racialism and where everyone was in regular contact with one other.

Wartburg is a farming area with gum, wattle and pine plantations.

The area is also known for livestock and poultry and supplies markets with vegetables such cabbage, potatoes and maize.

The station is used by farm owners and workers.

After casting his vote, Ndebele said he would go to Stanger and towns on the north coast encouraging people to vote.

    No! People should be mindful of their intentions and capabilities to deliver when making promises. A promise is not a tentative suggestion, it's a powerful statement that indicates commitment and invites the recipient to EXPECT that the giver will make good on his or her word. Be mindful of the future when making your promises because results WILL be expected!!

    KZN is a totally corruptly run province and the only thing that runs smoothly is the kickbacks from awarding tenders to buddies. The ANC has turned it into a festering sore, not much better than the Eastern Cape. This guy is either smoking something very strong, or he thinks we are?
