GREETINGS to the people of Kokstad.
Councillors strategic planning begins
The Council and management of Greater Kokstad Municipality is hosting a three-day strategic planning meeting, which started on Thursday 25 August.
Strategic planning is an important exercise for the new council so they can strategise on how to discharge their duties from now until 2021.
It is important for them to be aware of the status quo of the municipality, and that includes successes and challenges, looking at policies, the IDP for this term, the financial situation and many other issues that will promote good governance.
So I ask the community and stakeholders to be patient because councillors and management will not be available during this time. However, we will return as a well-oiled machine that will deliver services to the people of Kokstad.

Link Pharmacy 10km and 5km fun run and walk
The annual Link Pharmacy 10km and five-kilometre fun run and walk will take place on Saturday 3 September. It will start at Pick Pay Centre and end at Oval Stadium.
This is an important event in Kokstad, especially for those who want to promote a healthy lifestyle and I encourage everyone to support this initiative.
The national Department of Health has promoted a healthy lifestyle since 2008 because it is seen as another way of fighting obesity, blood pressure, diabetes and heart problems.
I also encourage the staff of GKM to be part of this race. A healthy body results in a healthy mind and this can improve service delivery, so for that reason the municipality supports this race.
To enter register at Link Pharmacy at Pick n Pay Centre or Crystal Pharmacy in Main Street opposite Nando’s or contact Khaya Xorile at 039 797 6600.
Siyaqhuba enkosi.
