More than R16 million was pledged for bulk water supply and outfall sewer in Rockdale and a further R10 million for the reservoir at Rietfontein.
This was one of the promises made to the Steve Tshwete Municipality by the Executive Mayor of the Nkangala District, Cllr Speedy Mashilo, at his State of the District Address.
“We are proud to have achieved democracy, peace and security, but we are still faced with massive service delivery and infrastructure backlogs in our municipalities. This is not surprising as we are reversing a legacy of a century of systematic
underdevelopment of black people in general and Africans in particular,” he stated.
Informed by this responsibility and acting in line with the National and Provincial Growth Strategy, as well as the National Development Plan: Vision for 2030, he said that they identified their job drivers as:
*Continuing and broadening public investment in infrastructure,
*Targeting more labour-absorbing activities in the agricultural and mining value chains, manufacturing, construction and services.
*Promoting innovation through “green economy” initiatives.
*Supporting rural development and regional integration.
“In support of this, we have set aside an amount of R20 million for job creation initiatives in the district!”
In dealing with issues of water quality in the district as per their function on municipal health, Cllr Mashilo said that they are going to upgrade six treatment plants in the district in both waste and potable water.
He stated that a feasibility study is being conducted for possible water abstraction from the Loskop Dam to deal with water challenges in Thembisile Hani Local Municipality.
An amount of R12 million has been set aside for all six municipalities to maximize their revenue enhancement.
A further promise is R6 million for the installation of a storm water management system in the central business district of eMalahleni Local Municipality.
For the Emakhazeni Local Municipality an amount of R11 million is set aside for the upgrading of the electrical network in Belfast, review of the water services development plan and the purchase of tipper trucks, amongst others.
