ALFRED Nzo District Municipality executive mayor, Sixolile Mehlomakhulu has outlined his vision to provide all communities in the district with basic service delivery. He also reported on progress made in his first 100 days in office since the Local Government Elections in August.

Addressing the media at a briefing held at Alfred Nzo District Municipality Conference Centre on Tuesday morning, the mayor expressed his determination in maintaining the momentum on delivering major improvements for the communities of Alfred Nzo.

“As a district we have improved the handling of municipal finances and the Auditor General outcomes will not be the same as those of previous years,” said the mayor.

The municipality has previously received unfavourable audit opinions from the Auditor General.

To achieve this, he said the municipality is on a mission to employ a full-time Chief Financial Officer.

He outlined a numbers of successes, challenges and plans for the next five years of his tenure.

He also engaged broader stakeholders, including ratepayers' associations, traditional leaders, hawkers, farmers, traditional healers, faith-based organisations and non governmental organisations to soliciting their views, input and suggestions on how best the council can work with them to find long lasting solutions. He also asked them for ideas on improving services the district municipality is providing to them.

“We want them to be part of the change they want to see. Working with all these stakeholders, there will be positive change that will develop and flourish orur communities,” said Mehlomakhulu.
