As the accounting officer of the Nkosizana Dlamini Zuma Municipality, it gives me pleasure to make this submission as the foreword of our newsletter which seeks to take the public on board in respect of the services delivered agenda to the Municipality. The Municipality has performed remarkably well in gaining the confidence of its communities through accelerated service delivery implantation of its service delivery mandate from the community members. Furthermore, the Municipality has put in the place very effective over sight mechanisms through the establishment of the Municipal Public Accounts Committee, which to date has carried out its oversight function very successfully.
Judging from the many positive developments that this Municipality has achieved which far outweigh the negative perceptions that had in the past become synonymous with NDZ Municipality, it can be safely said that the Municipality has indeed turned the corner. The IDP which serves as a master plan of the Municipality has improved tremendously compared to those of the previous years, and it is pleasing to note the MEC in her recent assessment has rated it as one of the most credible IDPs in the province. With a solid foundation having been laid, communities can have assurance that their needs as planned for in the IDP will be turned into tangible deliverables.
