UGU District Municipality received recognition for good governance at the recent Clean Administration Awards, presented to the municipality by the Chartered Institute of Governance Finance Audit and Risk Officers.

The award is in recognition of the work done by the municipality in improving its audit outcome for the 2014/15 compared to 2013/14 financial year when the municipality received a qualified audit opinion.

The municipality has implemented various turnaround strategies to address the previous­ year’s findings that had immense impact on improving the 2014/15 year’s audit outcome.

Our finances today are in a better shape than they were yesterday. We have built a solid foundation of financial sustainability. We have worked hard to increase our investments in infrastructure aimed at improving the quality of life of our communities and the quality of our services.

It is a well-deserved accolade not only for the political leadership and the senior management, but for each municipality employee who contributed to transform our municipality.

The award affirms the pivotal role played by residents of Ugu District and the local business community that has inspired us to raise our levels of service delivery and strive for an even better performance.

This award is also a clear indication that we are on the right track in our efforts to better the lives of our communities through the provision of basic services.

As we look forward to the 2015/16 audit outcomes, we reiterate our unwavering allegiance to the core imperatives of good governance and proclaim our readiness to accelerate the radical transformation of the district economy to bring about an equitable, just and inclusive district.
