AS government, we continue to implement initiatives that encourage improvement of our communities.

Last week, our municipality, in partnership with the Office of the Premier, launched the district’s Multisectoral Civil Society Forum, the aim of which is to form a work bond between government and the civil society sector.

The event follows a series of launches where the district’s family of local municipalities launched their structures at local level.

The formation of these structures is in adherence to a directive given by the KZN Premier in his 2017 State of the Province Address, that says government must establish strong, collaborative relationships and partnerships with the civil­ society sector.

The forum will ensure the formation of an integrated, active, participative and well co-ordinated multisectoral civil society body that plays a supportive role and collaborates with government in programmes of community and sector stakeholder interest and ensures that government accounts in this area of service delivery.

The elected district forum members are Lindani Mzotho (chairperson), Phumlani Mbuthuma (deputy chairperson), Pastor Chili (secretary general) and Ntombikayise Shabane (deputy secretary general), among other elected members.

We believe in active citizenry where the community collaborates with the municipality to improve the district. The municipality’s approach in the implementation of service delivery initiatives in not to isolate the community, but to involve stakeholders to advance people’s lives to reap the fruit of collective efforts.

We reiterate, two hands are better than one and working together we can move our district forward.

Ugu District Municipality promotes working together to create an environment that is friendly, responsive, accountable, effective and efficient for our communities.
