MEC Mthembu in Umzimkhulu
IN the spirit to empower rural people and rural farmers in agriculture, MEC Themba Mthembu of Department of Agriculture officially launched a sheep-shearing shed for the woolgrowers of Umzimkhulu. In this shed more than four associations will now be able to pack their wool properly before sending it to customers abroad.

Mental Awareness Day
In society we have a challenge of identifying symptoms of mental illness and of not supporting affected ones. It is important that we are equipped with the means to identify and perhaps to know preventative measures about the mental illness. Starting at home, through staff wellness programmes, municipal employees are today conducting an awareness campaign on mental illness.

Child Protection Week
Children are our future leaders, it is therefore important to protect them at all costs. As a municipality, we conducted an awareness campaign about child protection in Ntsikeni Village. Our commitment is to conduct such awareness campaigns throughout the wards so that Umzimkhulu continues to be a better place to be at.

Until we meet again.

Thank you.
