As the Executive Mayor of the Alfred Nzo District Municipality, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all citizens of the district for going out in numbers to cast their votes on the 3rd of August 2016, where they joined other millions of South Africans who contributed in strengthening the democratic process by electing their Councils as enshrined in the Constitution of the country.

As Alfred Nzo District Municipality, working with traditional leaders and all civil society formations, we will do everything in our power to ensure that we improve the services we are providing to our communities.

In the next three months, we will be meeting with traditional leaders, different civil society formations, faith based organisations and communities across the district to seek advises on how best we can work together towards provision of water, sanitation, disaster management services as well as local economic development of our region.

We will meet with all civil society formations with the aim of working together to find amicable solutions to challenges in relation to the services we provide to them.

I have met with all employees of the Alfred Nzo District Municipality as well as leaders of unions to iron out the issues affecting our staff members as they are our backbone.

In concluding, I must assure communities that my office will always be open for all our communities, as well as civil society formations. Working with our communities, we can do more to move local our district forward.
