UGU District Municipality has been nominated for the 2017 KZN Premier’s Excellence Awards.

Ugu has been nominated alongside Ulundi, Umzimkhulu and Zululand municipalities in the category of Best Run Municipality of the Year.

Ugu said assessors from the Office of the Premier evaluated the municipality’s performance in various areas including their turnaround strategy from 2013-2016, service delivery and budget implementation plan, the improvement in audit opinions, human resources management, intergovernmental relations, complaints management and risk management.

Municipal manager DD Naidoo said the municipality was humbled by the nomination.

“Any award and recognition for work done serves as motivation to those concerned to improve their performance and perform better­ thereby increasing the standard of service.

“This also gives us a benchmark to see where we are performing well within the sector and which aspects need attention, so we are in line with the best practices within the sector,” said Naidoo.

Naidoo has also been nominated in the Best Municipal Manager of the Year category.
