KWADUKUZA Mayor Ricardo Mthembu this week presided over the official opening of a number of infrastructure projects that will create jobs, beef up the local economy and provide access to key points of entries in the rural sections of various communities.

He handed over Mahambehuba Bridge in the upper Malende area worth R4.7 million, which took eight months to complete.

“We applaud the community of Ward 9 for being part of this huge project. This will certainly enhance the local economy through access to areas which were previously inaccessible as a result of flooding in the past,” Mthembu said.

Mthembu also officiated the 3,2km road improvement project costing R15,7 million.

He said these are some of the back- to-basic efforts to ensure government delivers according to the needs of the people as expressed in the Integrated Development Plan (IDP).

The road upgrade will not only contribute towards strengthening the economy and creating jobs but will also promote road safety in strategic entry points of rural communities. He also handed over the Mgigimbe Community Hall valued at R1,9 million.

“It is clear that government is taking the needs of the community very seriously.
“We acknowledge that there is still a lot to be done in this community,” Mthembu said.
