THE residents of Ntha near Lindley and Platberg in Ladybrand, were elated last week when Malefu Vilakazi, the executive mayor of the Thabo Mofutsanyana District Municipality, visited their areas to hand over completed road projects and to hold an interactive meeting with them.
The visit started in Lindley on Monday (07/12) when the mayor handed over a paved road to Matshukudu Molapisi, the mayor of the Nketoana Local Municipality.
She then proceeded to a public meeting with the community to report back on the progress made by the district municipality in the implementation of the Integrated Development Plan (IDP).
The visit continued to Ladybrand on Wednesday (09/12). In this area the executive mayor also handed over a paved road to the mayor of the Mantsopa Local Municipality, Sello Ntsepe. She also held a public meeting with the community of Platberg.
Vilakazi could not hide her excitement during these visits as they came at a time when Thabo Mofutsanyana District Municipality has received a clean audit report from the auditor general.
“We are very much excited as the municipality to have received a clean audit. We are very much appreciative of the collective work of our councillors, management and staff,” she said.
