WARM greetings.

Heritage Month

Heritage Month is celebrated annually every September. It recognises South African culture, both tangible and intangible, creative expression such as music and performances, historical inheritance, language, our food and memories of our country. Heritage opens opportunities in jobs and skills providing platforms for performers, crafters and subsidiary industries.

Our rich liberation heritage must be used to draw visitors to Umzimkhulu, Harry Gwala District in general. This will also serve to ensure that we protect our common heritage and advance our national heritage, which is inclusive of cultural diversity under the theme “Take action, inspire change”.


Umzimkhulu has lost one of its pioneers of service delivery who dedicated his life to changing the lives of Umzimkhulu people.

It is with great sadness to share the news that the municipality has lost its former executive member, who played a critical role in service delivery achievements of this municipality as chairperson of the Ampac committee, Mzoxolo Msiya.

In his time Msiya served the community of Umzimkhulu with vigilance, commitment and accountability. Umzimkhulu Municipality sends their condolences to the Msiya family.
