THE soon-to-be-amalgamated Ezin- qoleni Municipality received an award for its clean audit in the 2015/2016 financial year at the Cogta awards at the Durban ICC recently. Ezinqoleni Mayor Amon Mpisi said the municipality has received a clean audit for two years, which is a milestone for the municipality, and which other municipalities only dream about. At the awards the mayor thanked his officials and councillors for their good work.“This award is due to the good work and relationship the councillors and municipal officials have,” said Mpisi. Mpisi said as the day of the amalgamation draws near they are saying goodbye to Ezinqoleni Municipality and Hibiscus Coast and hello to the new Ray Nkonyeni Municipality.“We are saying our goodbyes to HCM and Ezinqoleni municipalities with a smile because of the great years we had as Ezinqoleni Municipality. We leave behind a legacy,” he said.
