Municipal Manager

I aim to use diligently this responsibility to improve the quality of life of people within the municipal area of jurisdiction which should stand the municipality in good stead in achieving its vision and mission of being a developmental municipality. Having said that, I heavily rely on the collective efforts of both staff and community members. To this end, community members are encouraged to participate in municipal business as much as possible and to be at the forefront of council business. Chief Albert Luthuli Municipality has made significant strides in ensuring a better life for all its citizens and continues to eradicate all service delivery backlogs in terms of water, sanitation and electricity. However, there is still a lot that ought to be done to make this thriving municipality better. The municipality has targeted improved revenue collection (up to 80%) and a forecasted local economic growth of 5%. Recently, an LED forum (which draws mining and governmental stakeholders within the municipal boundaries) was launched which will be an invaluable tool to achieving the 5% economic growth.
I therefore invite you to partner with us to make this municipality a better place to live. I strongly believe that the municipality has the potential to accomplish great things in the future.

Yours in good governance
