President Cyril Ramaphosa will visit Carolina, Mpumalanga on Friday to assess progress in providing services under the “One District, One Plan” approach of the District Development Model (DDM).
The visit will be part of a series of presidential imbias on the theme “Leave No One”.
The president’s statement said the visit comes after an intensive period of work between the three spheres of power and stakeholders in Mpumalanga on services in the municipality of Geert Sibande, where Carolina is located.
“Imbizo is a two-way direct, direct and interactive platform for information exchange, which promotes the active involvement of citizens in the implementation of government programs.
“Participation in Carolina, which is in the municipality of Gert Sibande, is taking place after similar visits by the president to the Northwest and the Free State over the past two months,” the president said.
Mpumalanga Imbizo will begin with the Presidential DDM Business Engagement at the Dutch Reformed Church in Carolina at 8 p.m.
This event will be followed by a mass event at Silabela Stadium in Carolina, where residents of the city and surrounding areas will be able to address the president and senior government officials about events or failures in the region and make suggestions on how the province can be ahead.
President Ramaphos will be accompanied by members of his cabinet, Prime Minister Mpumalanga and members of his executive council, mayors and advisers.
The President uses this visit to assess the progress in the provision of services and the implementation of the Plan for Reconstruction and Recovery.
Communities will receive information on public and private sector initiatives to improve social and economic conditions in Mpumalanga. – SAnews.gov.za
