ETHEKWINI Municipality has scooped seven awards at the Govan Mbeki Awards 2018 for fast-tracking service delivery. The City bagged four awards for social housing and three for housing projects.

It also received two awards in the Best Social Housing Project category with Hampshire Social Housing Project scooping first position and Hilltops Rental Social Housing Project being announced as the second runner up.

Mayor Zandile Gumede congratulated the City and officials for their hard work. “It is clear that the work that we do in our City is getting recognised by others. This is a motivation for us to do more,” she said. The City’s Ridgeview Garden Project was announced as the first runner up in the Best Project in Finance Linked Individual Subsidy category and the Klaarwater Community Residential Unit received an award in the Best Community Residential Unit category.

Under housing projects, the City’s Cornubia Phase 1B was awarded the Best Integrated Residential
Development Programme. Oakford Priority Project was recognised as the Most Beautiful, Clean and Enhanced Neighbourhood Projects. Best Informal Settlement Upgrade Project was awarded to Woodyglen Housing Project.

Durban has also been listed as the fifth wealthiest City in Africa by AfrAsia Bank’s 2018 Africa Wealth
Report which found that wealth held in the City totalled 55 billion dollars. “This type of wealth must be redistributed for the benefit of all people. This wealth must create jobs for our economy,” said Mayor Gumede.
