On the 3rd of August 2017, Umzimvubu Local Municipality will officially handover the Access Road from Nkanji to Molwana in ward 2, EmaXesibeni (Mt Ayliff). The R 3, 3 million access road stretches for 2km and was funded through the Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) in aid of fostering basic service delivery. The planning, implementation and maintenance of basic infrastructure is critical for sustaining basic standards of living and economic activity in our Municipality.

According to the Honorable Mayor Cllr. B.P Mabhengu,” Umzimvubu Local Municipality has the sole responsibility of creating decent living conditions by consistently delivering municipal services to the right quality and standard. This includes planning and delivering proper road infrastructure and maintenance. The access road was built on putting people and their concerns first by ensuring constant communication with affected communities through effective public participation platforms. This is the essence of our ‘back to basics’ approach. We therefore call upon on our communities to actively take part in public participation meetings and assist us in shaping Umzimvubu for the better” she concluded.

Details of the handover are as follows:
Date: 3rd August 2017
