Ugu female employees honour Women’s Month

2016-09-08 06:00

IT was glitz and glamour at the Ugu District Municipality’s Women’s Day celebration last Wednesday, hosted to honour the municipality’s female workers.

Over 250 women were treated to a day of edutainment where staff members shared stories and advice through poetry, song and plays about women’s development and the importance of being a woman in today’s society.

This event also served to remind female employees about how the new dispensation has transformed the realm of women in South Africa over the years.

Speaking at the event, municipal manager DD Naidoo conveyed his gratitude to the women staff who work hard to ensure the municipality keeps to the mandate of delivering uncompromised services to communities the municipality serves.

The speaker of the day, manager special programmes, Dudu Ngcobo in her address emphasised how imperative it is for women workers to be growth-hungry and take advantage of available opportunities to better themselves.

“Women need to realise that our country has an abundance of opportunities and women need to take advantage of them and improve their skills and knowledge. This will in turn create platforms for better employment thereby improving their income and address the district’s triple challenge scourge of poverty, unemployment and inequality.”

While the municipality hosts Women’s Day celebrations to remember the fearless women of 1956 which gave birth to women’s emancipation today, the event is also intended to foster workers’ morale in the municipality in order to improve work performance among them, thus ensuring the development of the organisation.

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