WARM greetings.

Orientation of Umzimkhulu councillors

In order to get a better alignment of municipal programmes to further bring councillors of this municipality into the municipal programme and to align the administrative programmes with the political agenda, Umzimkhulu Municipality held a fruitful two-day orientation session. After presentations, engagements and amendments it was clear to everyone that this rural based and fast-growing municipality was destined for bigger things.

Nkomfeni and Kiliva electrification

We have taken another step towards dignifying the community of Umzimkhulu and a service provider to electrify at 300 houses in Kiliva and Nkomfeni villages of Ward 14, was introduced to the community this week. The project is anticipated to start in October. We call upon the affected communities to create an enabling space for this project to be fruitfully executed.

Bondrad electrification

In the previous term the Umzimkhulu Local Municipality acknowledged that the pace of electrification of Umzimkhulu encountered unforeseen financial restraints. To the community of Bondrad Village in Ward 18, it was emotional when the service provider, who would to electrify 150 houses was introduced to that community. Umzimkhulu will never be the same again.

Until we meet again.

Thank you.
