HIBISCUS Coast Municipality said it has saved money during the mayoral imbizos as no marquees were hired this year, instead the municipality hosted all imbizos in community halls.

HCM mayor councillor Nomusa­ Mqwebu said this did not only represent saving on the part of council, it demonstrated that the municipality has delivered quality infrastructure projects to almost all communities within the municipality.

During the imbizos, which started on 9 November and ended on 19 November, the municipality­ handed over four bridges - Moto Ayingeni in Ward 10, KwaGanyaza in Ward 21, Mzotho in Ward 5 and the Msomi Mshoki pedestrian bridge in Ward 14.

Mqwebu said the aim of the imbizo­ was to meet with communities­ and interact with them in terms of raising their priorities­, which will be included in the integrated development plan for next year’s financial budget.

She said the company of Ugu District mayor Ntombifilie Gumede­ was also beneficial to communities as she addressed water challenges and intervention strategies to counter the drought.

“Communities were given an opportunity to ask questions and both municipalities gave clarity and answered issues raised,” said Mqwebu.
