Big Things For Kempton
Big Things For Kempton: The City of Ekurhuleni has hit the ground running for the year of 2017, as the mayoral service delivery programme continues. In the first 100 days in office, executive mayor, Clr Mzwandile Masina, introduced the #Siyaqhuba campaign as part of a drive towards ensuring that service delivery issues are rapidly responded to and more importantly, the people of the City are in closer proximity with public representatives. Masina has emphasised the need for urban rejuvenation in the major towns of Ekurhuleni. “The City of Ekurhuleni requires an effective system which synchronises rapid response and service delivery within the nine towns. “More importantly, there must be a seamless approach towards response to service delivery issues such as potholes, sidewalks and our health and safety issues.” He indicated that Germiston was one of the most historical towns in Ekurhuleni and housed the municipal precinct.
He has plans to ensure that there is a major renewal project for Germiston and Kempton Park as they are major logistical links, not just for the people of Ekurhuleni but for the country as well as the continent. Through the #Siyaqhuba service delivery drive, the mayor has called for an urgent audit of hijacked buildings, attendance to sidewalks and potholes and a major clean up and reinforcement of the peace cops and the clean city brigade. Masina is accompanied by members of the mayoral committee, the city manager, Dr Imogen Mashazi, and divisional head in operations: customer relations, Goodness Nhlapho, as well as other divisional heads.
