District hosts Municipal Manager’s Workshop

blankThe ZF Mgcawu District Municipality recently held a workshop that involved all Municipal Managers and Chief Financial Officers in the District.

In terms of Chapter 5 of the Municipal Structured Act (Act 117 of 1998) it is the responsibility of the District Municipality to build the capacity of local municipalities and to ensure that municipalities fulfil their mandate of providing basic services to communities.

This engagement has been long overdue and it was imperative that Managers discussed exactly how the District will build their capacity and the implications involved in providing such assistance.

Mr Elias Ntoba, District Municipal Manager agreed that the assistance and support should be more coordinated and the District should take the lead in this regard. Mr Ntoba was of the view that each municipality should strive towards a clean audit, but for this to happen much work lies ahead. The ZF Mgcawu District Municipality received a clean audit for the 2012/2013 financial year.

Local Municipalities also indicated their availability to assist each other where such assistance is required.

During the IDP public participation process the District did a needs analysis of the kind of assistance and support that B municipalities need. These needs will be captured in the District IDP and will be given further attention.
