Matric results

GREATER Kokstad Municipality would like to congratulate the Class of 2017 on their performance. We acknowledge the improvement of KZN’s 72.8% pass, compared to last year’s 66.4%. Kokstad Collage got 100% and Shayamoya High 88%, and they have made us proud.

The municipality wishes pupils well in their future endeavours. To those who did not made it, we want to encourage them, and tell them it is not the end of the road. We believe you have the ability and strength to soldier on so do not despair there is still tomorrow.

Mid-term performance report

The municipality is preparing the mid-year report which will be tabled to council before the end of January. This report will show how far we have gone in terms of the implementation of service delivery and Budget Implementation Plan of the institution.

This will assist council in executing its oversight function in the municipality.

‘Ulwaluko’ homecoming 2018

On Tuesday we experienced the presence of King Zwelithini, chairperson of the Traditional Council Leaders Inkosi Chiliza, deputy minister for Cogta, MEC for Cogta, MEC for health and DSD at the Ulwaluko that was held at the Shayamoya sports grounds.

This is an annual event which is meant to encourage and thank those who have responded to the call made by health department for young men to get circumcised to promote healthy living and fight against diseases.

Thank you for lending me your eyes and let’s meet next week, same time, same place.
