ZFM Holds last Council Meeting


The ZF Mgcawu District Municipality held its last Council Meeting for the 2017 calendar year at the end of November 2017. As is the custom the meeting was opened with scripture reading by one of the local clergymen, who encouraged the Council to have faith in God.


Although the Council Meeting took care of its business of the day, there was time made for the Political Parties to convey their Christmas wishes and wished each other a prosperous new year.

On the agenda of the day was also the long service certificates to staff members who have been in the employ of the Council for a period between 10-30 years. The Executive Mayor, Cllr Abraham Vosloo thanked all these employees, especially Mr Frik Strauss who has worked for the Council for 30years.

“Hard work and commitment are the order of the day here at ZFM and we wish to thank you for loyalty and dedication over the years,” said the Executive Mayor in his final remarks.
