THE KwaDukuza Civic and Ratepayers Association meeting scheduled for today, Wednesday, 16 March has been postponed for a later date yet to be announced.
According to the association’s interim chairperson Haroon Mohammedy the report back meeting held on 24 February at the KwaDukuza Town Hall to discuss, among other matters, the draft constitution and the official launch of the association, was unable to conclude its business as some members of the community raised issues relating to the composition of the committee and the presentation of the draft constitution.

“In view of the above and in order to address the concerns raised, it was decided that all 27 wards within the KwaDukuza Municipality should convene ward meetings and nominate one representative each to serve on the interim committee together with the current 11 members already on the committee. The representatives from the various wards were to be confirmed at the meeting that was to have been held today.”

He said the enlarged committee would then look at working on the draft constitution and, thereafter, convene a public meeting with an agenda it would decide upon. “Until the enlarged interim committee was set up, the activities of the current committee would be suspended.

“However, the process of getting the ward representatives has proven to be very challenging and no progress has been made in this regard. In order to drive the process forward, I have sought the assistance of mayor Ricardo Mthembu, speaker Thulani Khuluse, and Mr Sanele Mthiyane. Unfortunately, recent incidents within and outside the municipality have demanded the attention of the mayor and we have not been able to meet to chart a way forward.”

As a result of this, the meeting scheduled for today will not take place.

Mohammedy said new information will be made public as soon as some finality is reached.

“Whilst every effort will be made, all things being equal, to resolve this matter as early as possible, no guarantee can be given when this would happen.”
