KWADUKUZA Mayor Ricardo Mthembu last week launched a number of projects in various communities of KwaDukuza to ensure ongoing growth and development in rural and semi-urban areas.

Mthembu, together with members of the council, visited a number of project sites to unlock development as part of the municipality’s Integrated Development Plan in an effort to re-affirm their commitment to the implementation of the policy on Radical Economic Transformation.

To mark the commencement of the multimillion rand projects, the council invites the local community to be part of the projects’ sod-turning ceremony where details of the project are presented and the developers introduced to the community. The projects will create jobs and grow the economy, said Mthembu.

“We initiate these projects in direct response to the people. It is the people who guide us in the work that we do and we do it with common purpose and to ensure that the policy on Radical Economic Transformation finds expression.

“We need to create more jobs, contribute to our economy and drive progress.”

Some of the projects include internal roads in Etete at a cost of R7,1 million which will take eight months to complete, Khalafukwe Crèche valued at R2,1 million which will take six months, Mdlebeni 500-seater community hall which will take five months, the rehabilitation of the Groutville soccer field and construction of a combo court at a cost of R922 693 over a period of three months, and the Glenhills Combo Court at a cost of R686 000 which will take three months.
