The administration and I are finally shaking the shackles of subversion which have constrained Kannaland from way before we took office. Kannaland is at the threshold of sustained success.
My administration and I are driven by the needs and the dreams of the people of Kannaland. We are here to serve the people of Kannaland and to ensure that more than excellent service delivery is the hallmark at the municipality. We want to be known as the team who convinced the people of Kannaland that they can dream big and achieve big – bigger than expected.
The municipality focuses on infrastructure, and human settlement, and service delivery successes of the previous year and indicates the sustainable benefits of secure economic development following on hard achievements such as a first ever unqualified audit report and the solution to the worst water crisis in thirty five years. These accomplishments speak to the spirit of the people of Kannaland. These achievements will benefit our children and their children.
The approach to and the management of the water solution and the audit outcome, more so even than the solutions themselves, represent the real achievement, and set the stage for the realisation of the goals and objectives of this municipality: Consummate commitment to a clearly defined goal; realistic expectation of success; and a willingness and an ability to frame challenges for multi-disciplinary problem solving and outcomes based achievements.
An example of this approach is the realisation of an R300 000 000dam, which will provide so much more than water security at the best possible cost. The dam will provide jobs; it will provide economic stimulation; it will provide growth – beyond expectation! Our children and their children will continue to benefit from the impetus of this major development andit is realistic hope that is at the back of this IDP.
I thank the Executive Mayor and her Council for continued support and the strengthening of my hand; I thank my team and my administration for their commitment and shared vision; I thank Kannaland‘s private and public partners and share the Executive Mayor‘s expectation of even greater things to come when we work hand in hand for service delivery.
Tesame ís ons die munisipaliteit wat wérk!
