During a Council meeting held on the 28th March 2019, the Council of the ZF Mgcawu District Municipality adopted amongst others its Draft Budget 2019/2020 and its Draft Integrated Development Plan.

The Draft Budget was tabled by the Executive Mayor, Cllr Abraham Vosloo and in his budget the Executive Mayor reflected on the importance of March being Human Rights Month and the events of March 21 of 1960 in Sharpeville which serve as a stark reminder to all of us of the dark and regrettable past from which we have emerged.

“We must spend this year, the 25th anniversary of our freedom, asking ourselves whether we have built a society in which all South Africans equally and without exception enjoy their inalienable rights to life, dignity and liberty or not,” he said.

The draft budget is prepared to meet the Integrated Development Plan (IDP) priorities as well as the strategic objectives of ZF Mgcawu District Municipality and these documents have been compiled in alignment with each other.

Executive Mayor Vosloo highlighted that the District Municipality received its 6th consecutive clean audit for the 2017/2018 financial year, however, he acknowledged that a clean audit brings with it, its own set of challenges which include but are not limited to the fact that a clean audit does not indicate prosperity and wealth.

The Executive Mayor wished all Political Parties within the Council good luck with the elections and their electoral campaigns, keeping in mind that these campaigns should be kept clean and respectable.

“We wish to build a South Africa whose leaders are bold and courageous, leaders who remain servants of the people – and for whom fulfilling their duty is the highest, and the only, reward,” he concluded
