Umzimkhulu Local Municipality viewpoint

2016-10-07 06:00

GREETINGS to the people of Umzimkhulu.

Transport Month
Under the theme “Together, we move South Africa forward”, Umzimkhulu Local Municipality has built more than 1 000kms of roads in Umzimkhulu, and more than 500kms of access roads have also been completed. In order to enhance the quality of our work, Umzimkhulu Municipality bought its own plant equipment. In so doing, the municipality saved huge sums of money, and although it is not yet over, there is still a long road ahead and another network of road is under way.

This municipality prides itself on the amount of roads and other infracture built by the Department of Transport. It is also pleasing to see the working relationship between our law enforcement agencies so operations are conducted in unison and the level of commitment by Santaco under Operator Hlokomela is inspiring.

School holidays
It is public knowledge KZN did not perform well in the previous examinations , so I ask parents to create an enabling environment for teachers to instil academic discipline for their pupils. I also invite pupils to attend the summer schools and get involved in extra study lessons.

Employee wellness programmes
Seeing the level of commitment that Umzimkhulu Municipal employees are implementing every month is motivating and proves the level of a healthy lifestyle these employees are committed to achieving. This is one of the programmes that add value to staff retention, and leadership is behind them.

Until we meet again.
