View Point by the Municipal Manager
Warm greetings to Umzimkhulu people
The Back to Backs program is getting popular day by day in Umzimkhulu municipality. Since COGTA started the program, Umzimkhulu municipality has always been declared as functional municipality. However, it becomes something fantastic and fabulous but it requires extra-ordinary efforts from the staff and political leadership. The Mayor of Umzimkhulu, Hon. Cllr MB Mpabanga is very passionate about the program. The Mayor has decided to formulate a program which speaks to B2B by visiting specific communities to deal with their issues on the spot.
The Mayor has visited Isikhulu Village, Rocky Mount, KwaSenti, Lourdes, Nsikeni, Bomvini, Kruemhook, Nkofeni, and Nongingqa. Last Thursday, the Mayor was at Gugwini Village with his entourage comprising Deputy Mayor Cllr Nkala, Cllr Ngcongo Portfolio Head Infrastructure, and the management. He went there to clarify issues of service delivery. He has confessed the humiliation that our people are facing each day in that area is awful. The access road deserves serious attention, and it was coming from the community members themselves. Fortunately, the Mayor comes from one of the most impoverished areas of ward 2; he does not need to be conscientised with the plight of the people. He has always felt very agonistic circumstances whereby people do not have access to their respective homes. This is also a very painful situation in which the Mayor has committed to address as soon as the municipal machinery completes the roads that are under maintenance.
Gugwini Access Road is on the municipal prioritisation list, however, it will be constructed probably in the next financial year. Therefore it is very compelling for us to hasten the process of addressing the problem on a temporary basis.
The construction of satellite Tertiary Institution (DUT) in Umzimkhulu is very imminent. This comes after the visit of the Consultants led by Steve and with his technical team. Despite the fact that the project will help our students to reduce costs for attending Tertiary education in big cities, the project is meant to create job opportunities and at most, the sustainable jobs.
Till we meet again on the same platform.
