THE iLembe District Municipality, in partnership with the Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, hosted a sporting event between AmaKhosi within the iLembe District and the iLembe family of municipalities councillors on Friday.

The main objectives of the sports day was to enhance sound working relations with one another, to assist and support one another in the execution of leadership roles and responsibilities in relation to service delivery, and to develop agreed communication channels for information sharing, co-ordination, and consultation.
