Rural wards prioritised for development
​PUBLIC Service and Administration Minister Faith Muthambi and Mayor Zandile Gumede have vowed to prioritise rural development through fast-tracking service delivery in wards that were officially integrated into eThekwini last year.

Minister Muthambi and Mayor Gumede made this commitment during their visit on 12 May where they officially launched the uMnini Thusong Community Service Centre in Ward 98 and held an Imbizo at Madundubala Sports Field in Ward 105. Minister Muthambi led a delegation to the Winkelspruit Licencing and Testing Station and Mfume Clinic to assess the service given to members of the public. Ward 105, which was previously four wards under Vulamehlo Local Municipality, were incorporated into eThekwini after the Demarcations Board announced the amalgamation as part of the boundary changes to reduce KwaZulu-Natal municipalities.

During Minister Muthambi’s address at the Imbizo, she told Ward 105 residents that she was aware of their challenges and assured residents that government would address them. “I will return in August for an outreach programme in this area to give you feedback and progress that has been made to address your challenges,” she said. Minister Muthambi informed residents that Samsung had pledged a R1 million project for Ward 105 which will create 100 employment opportunities for youth. “This project has the potential of creating 500 more jobs.

Our aim is for all the young unemployed people in this Ward to benefi t,” she added. Mayor Gumede said the development of Ward 105 was a priority in eThekwini. “We want the 2017/18 budget to talk to rural development especially in this Ward. EThekwini will work closely with Minister Muthambi and her department to fast-track service delivery and identify key developments in this Ward,” she explained. After the offi cial launch of the uMnini Thusong Community Service Centre, Mayor Gumede: “This facility brings services closer to people and all these government departments are under one roof and easily accessible to residents of this community.”
