As we conclude youth month, the municipality now places focus on uniting communities in the name of our late former president Nelson Mandela. Madiba, as some would know him was very clear about a non- racial society committed to justice and equality. He has made an indelible mark on our society, having seen the transition from apartheid to a society built on the pillars of democracy and freedom. The month of July will be dedicated to reflect on South Africa’s painful past and the calibre of leadership needed for transformation as we also honour the late struggle icon OR Tambo.

Umzimvubu Local Municipality recognizes the significance of education and Ubuntu as two primary principles that the he prioritised. On that note, the municipality has always made sure that it reaches every community for any assistance required, listens to the communities and engages them on every matters affecting their livelihoods. It’s with this reason that I urge all communities residing within Umzimvubu Local Municipality to embrace 67 minutes and unite under one umbrella in the name of Nelson Mandela.

Under this council the municipality is in great hands!​
