Public Service Week

PUBLIC Service Week aims to discover innovations, reward excellence in the public sector, motivate public servants to further promote innovation, enhance professionalism in the public service, raise the image of public service, enhance trust in government, collect, document and share best practices for possible replication within a district as well as across the KwaZulu-Natal.
Public servants should use this week to reflect on their approach towards implementing objectives of government and enhancing inter-governmental relations. Batho Pele principles will always be the “Bible” for public servants, so that every day government changes people’s lives so together we can do more.

2016 Men’s Month

Men had been entrusted by our Heavenly Father to responsibly lead families. In return men will earn the respect of their loved ones. It is on that note that the soberness of men will always be in dire need in society. For society to be a better place men are must take the informed lead. Future fathers, boy children need eloquent role models through their fathers for this world to be a better place for all. I therefore call upon men of this rural municipality to join hands in fighting social ills and show a caring heart to their loved ones. With men of that nature, Umzimkhulu will be a better place. Our children need real men in order to better understand and implement their traditional values and ethics.

Local SMMEs

It is a fact that we as the municipality, have performed exceptionally well thus far, which is has attrached potential investors with numerous economic opportunities, therefore SMMEs need to be ready for such growth.
Through their engagement with the municipality, they must a voice of reason so the municipality will not be biased towards local economic development and empowerment. Our growth will be meaningless if it does not grow our SMME wing of our community. We acknowledge that the economic destination promised this far is not that close, but steps advancing it are worthwhile.

Until we meet again.

Thank you.
