Mayor X.M. Bhengu Concludes 2022/23 IDP and Budget Roadshows

His Worship the Mayor Cllr X.M Bhengu presented the Integrated Development Plan (IDP) and 2022/23 Budget at the final roadshow for the 2022/23 financial year.

The roadshow was held at the Dondotha Stadium and included the communities of Ward 2, 7, 8, 9 and 10.

The roadshows provide an engagement space with different community stakeholders who are an integral part of the uMfolozi Municipality.

The stakeholders have an opportunity to be a part of the municipality’s process in the development of the IDP and the municipality to provide feedback on the various programmes to be included in the IDP.

During his address, His Worship the Mayor Cllr Bhengu said the majority of the funds for this financial year have been put aside to develop and maintain infrastructure throughout uMfolozi, which includes access roads to rural communities.

“By government laws, we visit communities and amaKhosi so that they too can participate in this budget. It brings us joy that we have been warmly welcomed by the community as we embarked on the roadshows throughout uMfolozi,” said Mayor Bhengu.

His Worship further encouraged the community to always be vocal about issues that affect them when it comes to lack of service delivery.

The budget presented by Mayor Bhengu for the 2022/23 financial year was R240 million.
