MAYOR’S FOREWORD

Let me begin by quoting former state president Dr Nelson Mandela who said “Our rich and varied cultural heritage has a profound power to help build our nation”. KA SEGAENO RA RE RATA SEGAENO O SE TLHOYE SA OPE.
In line with the constitution, our country holds regular elections. Regular free and fair elections give people opportunity to choose those who represent their aspirations in municipal councils. The eminent inauguration of elected councillors during their first meeting marked the beginning of a new social contract of service delivery implementation between municipalities as represented by its elected political leadership as well as their respective communities.
With their vote for the ANC, our people have continued to elect and mandate the ANC to ensure that local government works better for the people. We shall work with the people to continue giving effect to their constitutional rights and thereby advancing peoples power to determine their own destinies.
Our councillors are going to sign performance agreements, and must also regularly report to communities on their work. This will give power to the people in holding their representatives accountable and making local government work.
We remain steadfast in our commitment to create a better life for all, I am determined that all of us in this new administration will work tirelessly, day and night, to live up to this vote of confidence to ensure that we do justice to the hopes, dreams and aspiration of all the people of Tswaing.
It will be difficult work but I have faith that we will achieve what we set out to do and more.

HON: LD MALWANE
MAYOR
TSWAING LOCAL MUNICIPALITY

2nd Edition

FORMER MAYOR’S FOREWORD


The municipality was placed under administration because it could not fulfill its mandate to the people. Its finances were in such dire straits that at some point it could not pay salaries to its ballooned staff complement, often alleged to be clogged with ghost employees. The municipality was bailed out of bankruptcy as the Provincial Government came with intervention.
Tswaing have inherited communities ravaged by inequalities and great service delivery backlogs. Amidst all the challenges, we have set ourselves ambitious targets in our five year plan of IDP to address these challenges.
The purpose of this report is to account to Tswaing, North West Province and the nation at large by providing a record of Municipality activities and reporting on performance in service delivery and budget implementation in accordance with section 127 of the MFMA no 56 of 2003.
The review of the current financial year IDP has placed us in a better position to address the needs of our communities.
We have also strengthened our partnership with our sector departments, traditional leaders, District municipality and communities in the implementation of the IDP. Ensuring that we sustain functional ward committees and CDW’s has made public participation easier besides the normal legislatory requirements consultations.
Our interdepartmental government forums with sister departments in Tswaing has ensured that we all work towards a common goal in terms of out targets. Involvement and accountability to our communities has remained the backbone of our success.
These are highlights of our achievements:
• Roads – rehabilitation of N14 and internal roads in Delareyville town.
• Re-gravelling of internal roads in rural areas – under procurement.
• Housing – providing of houses in designated wards.
• VIP toilets in ward 05.
• Paving in ward 08.
• Bulk water supply through extensions of Agisanang and Delareyville extension 08.
• Construction of libraries – Ganalaagte, Letsopa and Khunwana.
• Construction of schools – Deelpan, Delareyville extension 08.
• LED: opening of Choppies store – job creation.
• LED: vegetable project – Letsopa.
• Electrification in Delareyville extension.
• Pavement in Atameleng
As the municipality we have also embarked on an action plan to improve on the AG’s report. Structures are placed to deal with challenges and we are also positive that we won’t be placed under administration.
Implementation of a PMS in a full-fledged scale as planned is another strategy that will not only improve our performance but ensure that we accelerate our service delivery. We would like to urge Councillors to consult the communities they serve in everything they do. There is no way we can face the mammoth task of developing our municipality alone, we need to work hand in hand with communities to ensure that we deliver relevant services at the right time. Our key priorities as the incoming council include the creation of jobs, water, electricity, roads and sanitation. For us to achieve these, Councillors will constantly engage their communities.
In our acceptance address we outlined seven pillars that anchored our service delivery agenda and these were presented as follows:
• To amplify the provision of municipal services and infrastructure
• To accelerate economic growth, job creation and social development;
• To build sustainable communities with clean, healthy and safe environment as well as integrated social services;
• To strengthen participatory democracy and the principle of Batho Pele;
• To promote sound governance;
• To ensure financial sustainability; and
• To intensify organisational development and transformation.
We contemplated these pillars in an endeavor to maximise our strength and minimise our weaknesses so as to make it possible for us to deliver better and quality services to the citizens of Tswaing.
We should always abide by the principle of Batho Pele and remember that we are leaders because of the people we serve.
In promise to work together for the entrenchment of democracy, we extend a hand of friendship to opposition parties. It is very true that together we can achieve more.
Cllr Kgangetsile Ceasar Mogatusi [Former Honourable Mayor]

1st Edtion

In the times of changing fortunes of the political climate we live in, it is this reminder that gives us sleepless nights and undying resolve to remain nothing but humble servants to the masses of our people-young and old, frail and able bodied, black and white alike.

The high calling of selfless service remains the clarion call around which we all rely to progressively realize the ideal of “a better life for all” Integrated Development Planning remains the fundamental tool democratize governance in the Republic, and no doubt in our area of jurisdiction, hence I do not hesitate to present the IDP review for the current fiscus2014/2015.

The devotion and support of my fellow political colleagues in council as well as the tireless efforts and loyalty of the administrative cadres of the local municipality in the compilation of this plan are all immensely appreciated. The same goes to the IDP Representative Forum, which consistently articulates the aspirations of the vast majority of the 15 wards of this municipality.

It is my sincere hope that the development priorities represented in the IDP Review are truly a reflection of the aspirations and developmental objectives as captured throughout the imbizos,
Various ward and community level structures and indeed the IDP Representative Forum itself.

I hereby therefore present the 2014/15 Integrated Development Plan for the Tswaing Local municipality jurisdiction area duly examined, for the current financial year.
