Greater Kokstad Municipality viewpoint

GREETINGS to the people of Kokstad­.
Welcome to 2016
May I take this opportunity and greet all the citizens of Kokstad. It is a great joy for me to welcome everyone to 2016 especially the readers of this column.
Last year had its challenges for the municipality, but we managed to go through them. Obviously 2016 will come with its own challenges and victories, just like 2015. One thing is for sure, the people of Kokstad are looking forward to getting services that are due to them. As the municipality we are geared up to do our best to make sure that 2016 becomes a memorable year for the people of Kokstad. It is our mission to ensure that our people get value for their money and in 2016 we will continue to do that. With those few words I hope that 2016 brings joy to everyone in Kokstad.
Welcoming his majesty the king

On Tuesday 12 January the municipality will welcome King Goodwill Zwelithini Zulu to Kokstad for an annual initiation ceremony. This is an important ceremony for the municipality because it is part of moral regeneration. Preparations are going well and the community is invited to be part of this important occasion. The event will take place at Shayamoya sports field at 10am.

Congratulations to the Class of 2015
On Wednesday 6 January the whole country celebrated the matric results of the Class of 2015. When I was writing this column I didn’t have the statistics of the schools that did exceptionally well, but I must congratulate everyone who made it. To those who didn’t, I say please calm down, there are so many avenues you can follow to achieve your dreams. All is not lost, you can still make it.
