Taking into consideration the current financial position of the municipality, I have decided to approach Council to reallocate the 2016/2017 budget for the procurement of the mayoral vehicle.
To this end, it is my intention to redirect such funding towards addressing pressing service delivery needs. The need to procure the mayoral vehicle was informed by amongst others that the municipality does not have a mayoral vehicle with the previous vehicle having exceeded its lifespan and is not economically viable to repair or maintain it.
I further put it on record that the rental vehicle that was sourced to assist me in executing my official duties shall be seized immediately and I will make use of my personal vehicle to execute official duties.
I want to put it on record that I have made the decision voluntarily to set a positive example that we can steer the municipality to achieve its goal of delivering efficient services despite limited resources. The municipality’s priority remains that of providing essential services within the available means.
I will continue to play my oversight role to make sure that Musina Municipality continues to deliver better and affordable services to all citizens.
