2018 Matric results

Once again this year’s matric results have brought some hope to this rural municipality.

As one of the key stakeholders in education, we pride ourselves on the significant role we have played towards adding value to the academic performance of these pupils.

We understand that these achievements are less compared to the amount of energy and time invested in these pupils.

These results have also proved there is a lot yet to be done in our education system.

We would like to appeal to relevant stakeholders, especially parents, to support the schools and pupils who did not do well.

In the same breath we congratulate those who have succeeded by assuring them that the battle has just begin, but at a different level all together.

EPWP creates more job opportunities

Between November 2017 to now 96 beneficiaries had been recruited under Umzimkhulu`s EPWP. Though, due to the high unemployment rate, we would like to more than triple this number, but we understand the reason behind this number.

We call upon these beneficiaries to run with this programme and continue to dignify it more.

Till we meet again.
