ZFM holds last Council Meeting 2018

The ZF Mgcawu District Municipality held its last Council Meeting for the 2018 calendar year at the end of November 2018. 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.

The Council welcomed two new Councillors who were sworn in, namely; Cllr Paulus Mgcera of the African National Congress (ANC) and Cllr Alister Davids of the Save Tsantsabane Coalition (STC); these Councillors were sworn in to fill the vacancies that were left by amongst others the passing away of Cllr Hazel Mothibi.

Awards 1

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 were 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 Mrs Elizabeth Sterrenberg who has worked for the Council for well over 25years and is now going on pension.

Awards 2

The Executive Mayor, Cllr Abraham Vosloo said in his speech, “that your attitude determines your altitude, and both the staff and Council of ZFM have a positive attitude towards the work they do and their individual roles they play”. The Executive Mayor made this remark in reference to the recently received award from SALGA for achieving a clean audit for the 2016/2017 financial year. The District Municipality further received an award from SALGA at the recently held Provincial Members Assembly for “Improved Provision of Municipal Health Services” in the province.

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