NDZ viewpoint

2017-02-24 06:00

GREETINGS to residents. It is a privilege to bring you this week’s viewpoint and once again to remind our people that there is no municipality without the community.

It is a pleasure to serve the community of Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma Local Municipality.

A municipality is made up of the community, councillors and the administration and we have continuous interaction as stakeholders in this municipality. We face challenges together, but we also celebrate together.

It is unfortunate that we have competing priorities in our lives, but what matters most is understanding that not all our current priorities can be attended to right away.

This is mainly because of limited resources, that are only made available on a five, three or one-year basis.

We commend and thank the Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma Municipality, the community, councillors and staff on agreeing to focus on youth development and basic needs, which are our major challenges, however, working together we can do more.

We would like to make the community aware that the tourism stakeholder’s meeting, that was supposed to be held on 22 February, has been postponed. A new date will be communicated soon. Until next time, stay blessed.
