Umzimkhulu Local Municipality viewpoint

2016-10-28 06:00

AS the municipality, we have had much success with infrastructure and LED project that we would like to share with the community of Umzimkhulu and surroundings.

It is on that note that we will have a media briefing next week because we have received many media inquiries about certain municipal projects, so we are taking the opportunity to put the facts into prospective in order for media houses to engage with us.

Department of Justice Awareness Campaign

It came to the attention of government that our communities have limited knowledge about the broader services that seek to empower them within this department. So, in collaboration with Umzimkhulu Municipality, Sassa and Department of Social Development, a one-week campaign is going to be held.

Auditor-General auditing

We have been busy for a month with the Auditor-General. This season is a busy season in the municipality because there are number of activities that have to take place, while at the same time, relevant officials have to be available when the AG needs them.

I would thank municipal officials for co-operating and for being available at all times, because through these engagements with, or submissions to, the AG one has become appreciative of the distances travelled by the municipality.

Until we meet again.
