Umzimkhulu Local Municipality viewpoint

WARM greetings.

Operation MBO

As stakeholders have been engaging in the Ward 7 war room, intense profiling was conducted and it became clear there should be an integrated service delivery approach, so Operation MBO was then conducted in Mountain Village in this ward. This programme came as a huge relief and services were rendered by stakeholders.

Through this programme, government is well defined in Umzimkhulu.

TB awareness campaign

During the local quarterly stakeholders forum, Department of Health raised concern about the growing statistics of TB in Zone 2, so an awareness campaign was conducted with relevant stakeholders.

Our culture

Recently more than 2 000 girls of Umzimkhulu, who participate in the annual reed dance in KwaZulu-Natal, gathered in Clydesdale and workshopped on their responsibilities, as part of the mobilisation of the event. During the engagement the girls expressed their commitment to the programme regardless of societal changes, and those who no longer attend the reed dance also participated to add value to the programme and align themselves with traditional activities and expectations.

Electrification in Sikhulu Village

In its quest to further electrify Umzimkhulu, the municipality electrified more than 200 households. More families are still to receive electricity in this zone, so the programme is not yet finished.

This programme has once again proved how Umzimkhulu Local Municipality is committed to changing people`s lives.

Until we meet again.
