The first quarter of the 2016/17 financial year started off on a very good note.
The first quarter of the 2016/17 financial year started off on a very good note. The quarter might have been a very short one, we have managed to push to get everything done on time in preparation of the Auditors. We are very much strict on service delivery as a municipality and also compliance of all the municipalities in the district. Therefore we stay true to our legal mandate of building the capacity of local municipalities in as far as possible.
I have to once again applaud the hard work of the leadership and that of the administrative officials in all municipalities in the district.
As many know that the ZF Mgcawu District had six municipalities. We have now five local municipalities with //Khara Hais Municipality and Mier Muncipality amalgamated into one. The amalgamation process has been a successful one due to the continued cooperation of the officials of ZF Mgcawu District Municipality, //Khara Hais Municipality and Mier Municipality respectively.
The new amalgamated municipality has been officially named Dawid Kruiper Municipality. It is named after the Traditional leader and activist of the Khomani San
We have also had the privilege to honour liberation heroes and heroines by renaming the Upington Provincial Government Building to Evelina De Bruin Provincial Building and the District Office of the Department of Roads and Public Works to the Ntsikelelo Mbetha District Office.
On behalf of the Council and staff of the ZF Mgcawu District Municipality I would like to wish the matric class of 2016 success and prosperity in the National Senior Certificate examinations.
Let us work together with our communities in making the district a better place to live in.
