THE uMngeni Ratepayers’ Forum will be holding a public meeting on Sunday to report back on the progress of its campaign for fairer rates in the town.

Since its last meeting in July, which saw a record turnout of residents, the forum has met the uMngeni Municipality and senior members of the of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Department.

Forum chairperson Mano Naidoo said that as a result of that meeting they are expecting the MEC, Nomusa Dube, to be the keynote speaker at Sunday’s meeting, which takes place at the Howick West Community Hall starting at 1.30 pm.

Naidoo said that not only is the campaign for fair rates empowering residents, but it is also getting them to understand local government better.

He said the initiative has encouraged residents to become more community-conscious and inclusive. — WR.
