THE Umzimkhulu Municipality awarded ward committee members with certificates of appreciation before their five-year term ends next month.
Council speaker Khayalethu Thobela said the municipality is proud of the contribution ward committees have made over the years.

“Through your [ward committees] soberness and commitment the municipality has never encountered any public unrest.
“Your role has not gone unnoticed by the municipality.”

Thobela encouraged ward committees to continue working with the municipality in their areas and thanked them for being patient with the municipality, especially during difficult times.

“One of the major reasons for this success in the municipality is the accountability and transparency of information to the community. “This rural municipality efficiently communicates with people through ward committees.
“Their efficient reporting and engagement with the community have made them reliable foot soldiers of our government.
“More than anything else these hard-working brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers and ladies and gentlemen have become the communicators of government advancing public participation.
“Their term of office was five years and is now ending collaboratively,” said Thobela.

Princes Somakahle, an awarded ward committee member, said it was awesome to work for the people of Umzimkhulu.
“Working for the municipality was emotional and inspiring. I thank the municipality for giving us these certificates of appreciation.”
