Umzimkhulu Local Municipality viewpoint

2016-11-11 06:00

AS a municipality we have a numerous successes with infrastructure and LED projects we would like to share with the community of Umzimkhulu and surroundings.
It is on that note we announce we will be holding a media briefing next week because we have received a number of media inquiries about certain municipal projects.
We also take that opportunity to put facts into prospective and enable media houses to engage.

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

Auditor-General auditing
For a month now we have been busy with the Auditor­-General (AG) at the institution. This season is a strategically busy season in the municipality because there are a number of prestigious activities that have to take place, and at the same time relevant officials have to be available whenever the AG needs them.
I would like to applaud municipal officials for co-operating and for being available at all times, because through these engagements with, or submissions to, the AG one has to be appreciative of the distance travelled­ by the municipality.

Until we meet again.
