Condom Awareness Campaign

In the spirit of promoting a healthy lifestyle, the municipality has embarked on an awareness campaign to educate our communities about the ABC principles. Through this programme we are also educating our communities about family planning and empowering the youth. We have clustered our venues according to five municipal zones, and participation by communities will be greatly appreciated.

Performance, monitoring and evaluation season

We have just completed reviewing our 2016/2017 operational plans, this includes service delivery, the budget implementation plan and the organisational score card in order for them to be aligned with our budget adjustment. Municipal departments have also finalised their operational plans for the 2017/201 financial year. We have also finalised the development of the operational plan for 2017/2018. The documents are undergoing their respective review processes. This means that we have done looked at distance travelled and mileage to be travelled.

Municipal public account committee

This oversight committee is at an advance stage of finalising its oversight role in the 2015/2016 annual report. As this committee scrutinises the document the municipal performance is not exempt from being scrutinised as well.
