GREETINGS to all Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma citizens and Harry Gwala as a whole, it is with pleasure that we meet again, we appreciate the time granted by the almighty above.

The Dr Nkosazana Dlamini–Zuma municipality held its strategy and planning session on February 5 and 7 in order to review the organisation’s vision, mission, and short- and long-term objectives and strategic direction. The objectives of the strategy and planning session are to provide a broad reflection of the municipality’s conceptualisation of the back-to-basics as an integral instrument of a developmental local government, to appraise the Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) on the organisational performance of NDZ Municipality in discharging its local governance mandate.

It was further aimed at highlighting strategic and prudent areas of required support to enhance the organisational performance record of the municipality, and finally to allow a platform as a theatre of engagement to solicit collective understanding and approach in implementing and accounting on the back to basics in order to strengthen social contract between Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality and its local communities and other role players.

The following municipal key performance areas were discussed extensively in the session.

• Revenue turnaround strategy

• Organisational review and experiential learning

• Budget adjustment

• Good governance

• Social and community services

• Local economic development

• Technical services and public works.

The discussions resulted in the formulation of a report that will be adopted by council and drive the organisations strategic plan. In the year 2018, we have set targets that we want to achieve as the organisation. We are asking our community members to work with us, to work with their respective councillors and ward committees in order to achieve our goal which is a better life for all.
