President Cyril Ramaphosa, accompanied by members of his cabinet as well as provincial and local leaders, will be in the small town of Carolina in Mpumalanga on Friday as part of the presidential Imbizo.
The delegation will work with the communities of the Gert Sibande district municipality on how best to address their immediate problems and create the conditions for long-term stability and development.
This is the third series of presidential Imbizos, the first two were held in the provinces of Frishtai and Northwest at the beginning of the year.
Carolina residents hope the presidential Imbizo will bring lasting services:
Meanwhile, Minister of Cooperative Management and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma says: “The President will come. The people will say that he has problems. Then the ministers will take note. Some will answer, but they must return with the province to say that it was raised and what to do with it. “
She adds: “Although the municipality may not have all the money for it, but if we work together, we can still achieve because in the past we worked in units. There are a lot of resources that are expended, but if you spend them separately in bunkers, it doesn’t have the necessary impact on the land. ”
