“We do this kind of gathering on an annual basis to consider and look at how did we perform in our IDP in the last six months of our financial year.

“It will also guide us in preparation for our next financial year, also focusing on good governance and public participation, institutional arrangements and transformation, basic service delivery and infrastructure development for example the progress on construction of houses like Mathonsi/Sundumbili, Inyoni, and Macambini housing projects and economic development like EPWP projects as we know that more people are employed to alleviate poverty,” said Khuzwayo.
