Statement In Relation To Water Supply Challenges In Musina

Date: 14 March 2017

Background

Musina water extraction is done in the Limpopo River, where boreholes are submerged in and along the river. In total, we have 22 operational boreholes, 8 of which are right inside the river and the 14 alongside the river.  Tragically, 8 of the boreholes that are in the river have since been eroded by the high volume of flowing water caused by the heavy rains from upstream. This is because the Limpopo River is fed by a number of tributaries upstream.

STATEMENT BY HER WORSHIP MAYOR OF MUSINA, CLLR MIHLOTI MUHLOPE REGARDING THE PROCUREMENT OF MAYORAL VEHICLE

Date: 09 February 2017

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.

Statement on the Purchase of Mayoral Vehicle

Date: 02 February 2017

Following some misleading media reports, we feel it is important to clear the air as follows:

It is true that the municipality is in the process of procuring an official vehicle for the Mayor’s Office. The car does not belong to an individual and it falls within the fleet of the municipality. 

We are currently renting a car for the Office of the Mayor at a higher cost because the old mayoral car has reached its lifespan and it is not economical viable to repair it. As compared to renting, buying becomes a cheaper option at the long run.

We want to put it on record that due procurement procedures were followed when purchasing the vehicle as it was budgeted for. Community members were requested to make inputs during the budget consultation meetings and no objections were raised. All requirements for the Municipal Finance Management Act were adhered to.

Some of the people who are now objecting through the media seat in the finance portfolio committee and they were part of the decision. They did not object when the decision was discussed in the Executive Committee. Council, as the highest decision-making body approved the purchase as it went through all the committees and procurement procedures.

Furthermore, buying a reliable vehicle for the Mayor’s Office is part of service delivery as the office will be able to execute its duties with ease.
