Mayors of local municipal councils in uMgungundlovu want to prioritise economic growth, agriculture, and cleanliness in their towns.

The mayors, most of whom were re-elected, told The Witness on Tuesday that the plan was to maintain stability in the local councils and ensure service delivery was not compromised. These were the vows of mayors in Richmond and uMshwati local municipalities.

The mayors Samora Ndlovu (ANC) of Richmond municipality and Mandla Zondi (ANC) of uMshwati were elected unopposed. Ndlovu said he was humbled by his re-election.
