“ACT for peace in the home and in South Africa to end gender-based violence.”

Greetings to everyone, especially to the citizens of Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma Municipality. Human Rights Day commemorates a poignant moment in South Africa’s history, in which we remember the country’s struggle for the ideals of equality, freedom and dignity.

In 2018, South Africa celebrates the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, a luminary whose vision for a multicultural society still pervades the national discourse. Act for peace to move South Africa forward is the national theme for this year. Globally, the world is seeing a resurgence of polarising and divisive politics, inflammatory rhetoric and discrimination against people on the basis of religion, gender, race and sexuality. It is our duty as a community to seek to affirm each other’s humanity through our teaching, research and community engagement.

This is why the organisation took a decision to host a Human Rights Day on March 29 at Himeville community hall. The final plans for this event were presented to the Sukuma Sakhe task team on March 16. It is through working together that we are able to achieve more; we recognise the efforts by our officials and we acknowledge their contribution in putting people first, siyabonga.

The budget for the financial year 2018/19 has been drafted and presented to the council. The municipality will now undergo the IDP process consulting the community and engaging further with stakeholders so as to achieve alignment in all governments projects and programmes. We move under the theme of “Service delivery to the people”. Until next time, stay blessed.
