2011-06-15 00:00

THE newly elected Mayor of Sisonke District has promised a different approach to fast- track service delivery and to review the district’s integrated development plan for the next five years.

He also promises to look into resident’s priorities.

Councillor Mluleki Ndobe, who was inaugurated last week, thanked the voters of Sisonke for having confidence in the ANC.

Ndobe said his first act of office will be a skills audit of the municipality.

“It is not that we are going to fire people, but we will check the potential of our managers, and those who are unable to deliver, will be dealt with.”

Other priorities are rural bulk water projects and greater investment in agriculture and tourism.

As for electricity supplies, Ndobe said said the Riverside substation will benefit Ingwe, Umzimkulu and Buhlebezwe.
