Induction of ward committees

We now have ward committees who know who they are and what they are there for, this after ward committees have been inducted. KZN Cogta was also present at the induction at the Clydesdale Community Hall. This event was also attended by CDW, government departments and ward councillors. It was pleasing to see mature and constructive engagement with the new ward committees. Now, all roads lead to the ward whereby an enabling communication platform has to be made available for our communities.

Work and play programme

In advancing a healthy lifestyle, councillors and House of Traditional Leaders from Harry Gwala and surrounding districts took part in a tournament at Umzimkhulu turf ground. Seeing leaders putting everything else aside and wearing soccer boots and kit was motivational and inspiring. This is in line with the healthy lifestyle that government is motivating everyone to be a part of.

Disaster management

Every day we witness the changing weather conditions, after the long drought that robbed our agricultural and human benefits. We appreciate the rain, but we also warn and advise communities to be mindful of disaster and take precautionary measures and embark on implementing them. We also urge motorists to be mindful of traffic regulations by observing the rules on the roads.
