INVESTING IN THE FUTURE OF OUR YOUTH

 

His Worship the Mayor, Cllr Thelumoya Zulu, visited Sunnydale Secondary School to address and inform learners about the importance of voting. He also encouraged high school learners to get their ID books ready and register to vote in the local government elections.

Ten school bags and scientific calculators were given to ten Grade 11 maths and science top achievers. A further donation benefited a number of high school girls who were identified as underprivileged. These girls each received sanitary pads.

CHANGING LIVES THROUGH PROVISION OF HOUSING

Based on the current housing demand for uMlalazi area, the demand is estimated to be 5 500 in the urban areas,whereas in the rural areas it is estimated to be an average demand of 8 198 households.

With the drive to provide adequate housing to our residents, uMlalazi Municipality launched a housebuilding programme to benefit underprivileged families. Poverty, especially in rural areas is the underlying cause leading many families to lack the means to have suitable housing.

As local government, hence as further emphasised by the constitution of South Africa – we have introduced measures to achieve the progressive realis ation of the people’s right to decent housing.
