Municipal leadership inauguration ends well at Dienie Estates Rustenburg

The municipal political leadership inauguration and hundred (100) program which started on 8 November 2016 and ended 16 November 2016, may be described in one word: “successful”. It was successful in the sense that residents flocked to venues in their hundreds if not thousands, to meet and greet their leaders with joy and happiness. The campaign was mirrored on an outreach to communities introducing leadership of the municipality as well as thanking them for their participation in the October local government elections. “We are going to be doing things differently in this five-year term, to ensure quality service to you, thus making Rustenburg Local Municipality effective and efficient. We have made it clear to all municipal employees that anyone who is not prepared to serve you will have to make way for others who want to serve you with passion. That is why members of the Mayoral Committee even furnish you with their own cell phone numbers to demonstrate that we mean what we say. Please support your respective Ward Councillors by attending Ward meetings, so that you are kept abreast of latest developments in your ward”, said Executive Mayor, Cllr Mpho Khunou in his speech, to loud applause of residents in approval. Various members of the mayoral committee took to the podium to give a brief overview of their portfolios and plans for the next five years. End.
