WARM greetings.

Mid-term report

For the better implementation of the IDP, because the community had input on service delivery, Umzimkhulu Municipality has put systems in place as a way towards the objectives of people`s needs.

A special council of Umzimkhulu recently sat to discuss the mid-term reports and it was satisfied with the pace and shape the municipality is taking. Municipal systems have proved to be going in the right direction and municipal employees are committed to service delivery.

Municipal finances are not in an alarming state, and the distance financially travelled thus far has been satisfactory.

Tertiary registration fee assistance

The municipality has since taken a decision to assist needy pupils with tertiary registration fees. The closing date for submissions was last week and it was impressive to see how the number of pupils accepted in tertiary institutions has increased in Umzimkhulu.

This proves that in five years time we are going to have triple the number of graduates. What is also pleasing is to see that our future leaders have been accepted in strategic and scarce skills career paths.

Till we meet again at the same spot and same time. Thank you.
