The IDP and Budget road shows for 2015/2016 started on the 04th of May 2015 and ended on the 14th of May 2015 where the Municipal Councillors led by the Hon. Mayor Cllr. BM Nxusa and the municipal officials visited all 08 wards of éDumbe to listen to the needs of the community with the purpose of prioritising them and including them to the 2015/2016 IDP and allocate the budget to achieve those particular needs thereof. 

The community had raised a number of needs which some of them were included in a wish list and others were prioritized to be implemented in the 2015/2016 financial year. The Council has then approved the following MIG projects to be implemented in the 2015/2016 financial year as means to meet the needs of the community:

Foreword by the Municipal Manager

The well functioning of the Municipality is based on efficiency and effectiveness of resources which include the personnel and the equipment being used. By observing the previous annual report for 2011 there are indications of a great improvement when comparing with other previous years' reports. There was no magic in achieving this but it was through becoming committed, dedicated and think positive for positive results. The commitment was demonstrated by both Officials and the Honourable Councillors. In our Municipality we strongly observe the MFMA which regulates the way in which Municipality funds should managed. By accurate keeping of record of all departments up to date makes it easy for the Auditor-General to make us achieve unqualified audit opinion as it happened in the annual report for 2011. 

As a rural based Municipality with huge population we are always hoping to get assistance if possible from the National Treasury through the help of Auditor-General to fund our activities. As a rural Municipality we are not generating much revenue, this has negative impact in service delivery because the needs of the people are more than the revenue we get and the majority claim to be indigent relief. Click here to Read more
