WARM greetings to all readers of this viewpoint.
Welcome once again to the Matatiele Local Municipality viewpoint. It is our responsibility to ensure that our community is well informed of recent accomplishments at their respective areas.

The Matatiele Local Municipality believes in providing people with information which is accessible to them, and which they can use to improve their lives, based on their needs, encouraging people to participate actively in the democratic processes, and keeping people continuously informed of policies and programmes that affect them and the progress of the implementation thereof.

Municipality trains SMMEs
Matatiele Local Municipality, in collaboration­ with the Eastern Cape Development Corporation, held a three-day training course for Matatiele SMMEs on financial management at the town hall. Training started on Wednesday and finishes today. The training will assist them to make effective and efficient use of resources to achieve objectives and fulfill commitments to stakeholders, further help them to be more accountable to donors and stakeholders.

Women’s Month celebrated in style
We are in a very significant month, Women’s Month. On 9 August, 1956, about 20 000 women of all races marched to the Union Building in Pretoria to protest against the discriminatory pass laws which restricted the movement of black people in the country. This march has been celebrated since 1995 as Women’s Day to recognise the important role that political­ activism by women played during the struggle for liberation against colonisation and apartheid.

As part of commemorating and honouring the women of 1956, Matatiele Local Municipality female staff celebrated in style by wearing head-wraps on Wednesday.
That is all from us for now. Until next time, stay safe and be blessed.
Thank you sweet people from sweet Matat, a destination of choice and excellence.
