ADM THROUGH ASPIRE TO HAND OVER PROPERTIES AS IT WRAPS UP ITS SMALL TOWNS REGENERATION PROGRAMME IN RAYMOND MHLABA

MEDIA ADVISORY 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ADM THROUGH ASPIRE  TO HAND OVER PROPERTIES AS IT WRAPS UP ITS SMALL TOWNS REGENERATION PROGRAMME IN RAYMOND MHLABA 

 

 

 

ADM HEADQUARTERS- 09 APRIL 2019 

Amathole District Municipality through its development agency, ASPIRE continuously strives to establish future sustainable socio-economic developments for its local towns in an effort to gain commercial competitive advantage. It is for this reason that through the Small Towns Regeneration Programme, which is  an initiative by ADM through ASPIRE embarked on creating business opportunities for local business sector (formal and informal) to shine the spotlight on its small towns.

 

The town of Alice, under Raymond Mhlaba LM within Amathole District Municipality will be handed over three multimillion projects, namely Pedestrian Foot Bridge to Lovedale College, CBD Park Upgrade into Garden of Remembrance as well as Alice Public Transport Hub.

 

With the transport hub being the final of the three Alice Small Towns Regeneration projects to be completed, the multi-purpose hub possesses a revamped taxi rank as well as renovation and extension of the building located on site to be used as rank offices and meeting boardroom with storage and ablution facilities.

 

The project which started in 2017 through ASPIRE’s intervention will see Alice town boast of a safer and beautiful town where communities and visitors alike can enjoy walking around upgraded park and Garden of Remembrance whilst also enjoying a centralized taxi rank without walking long distances for a connecting transport into the town’s near and far villages. 

 

As has been the norm with other Small Towns Regeneration projects, the Alice Regeneration Programme is one other initiative aimed at linking economic development within this small rural town to other important economic generation activities such as  community-oriented commercial centre development for the locals and neighboring villages.

 

Through the Neighbourhood Development Partnership Grant under the National Treasury, a total amount of R39 717 500.00 was spent on the three projects. From its implementation, the project ensured that 50 locals were employed and skilled in areas such as civil works as well as building construction works.

 

Members of the media are invited to attend and cover the event.

The handover of these properties will be held as follows;

Date: 12 April 2019

Venue: Raymond Mhlaba LM Council Chamber

Time: 10h00

 

 Issued by ADM Communications in partnership with ASPIRE Development Agency and Raymond Mhlaba Local Municipality.

ADM APPOINTS ITS FIRST EVER WOMAN CFO

MEDIA RELEASE 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
 
ADM APPOINTS ITS FIRST EVER WOMAN CFO
 
 
ADM HEADQUARTERS, Wednesday, 1 March 2017.
 
 
The Amathole District Municipality Council appointed Ms Nomthandazo Ntshanga as the municipality’s first ever woman Chief Financial Officer (CFO). This historic decision was taken at a Special Council meeting held at Calgary Conference Centre and Museum, in East London this morning.
 
The position became vacant after the previous CFO Mr. Nkosinathi Soga resigned.
 
Mrs. Ntshanga holds a B-Tech in Cost & Management Accounting from the University of South Africa, a certificate in GRAP Implementation and another in Municipal Finance Management from the University of Stellenbosch and University of Fort Hare respectively. It is noteworthy to indicate that her experience in local government spans over 14 years, with 10 years as a Chief Financial Officer in various municipalities.
 
Mrs. Ntshanga is the first woman to ascend to this critical position since the ushering in of the new local government dispensation.
 
Speaking on behalf of the ADM, the Executive Mayor, Cllr Winnie Nomfusi Nxawe said Ntshanga’s appointment comes at a crucial time when the institution received its 5th unqualified audit opinion.
 
“As ADM we have made history by obtaining an unqualified audit opinion for the past 5 years. Mrs. Ntshanga’s appointment as CFO, becomes crucial to maintain good financial management for the public purse that the institution is entrusted with.”
 
“On behalf of the ADM council, I wish the new incumbent well in her position and would like to assure her of our support to ensure she executes her duties with ease” said Nxawe.
 
According to the Chairperson of the panel Mr. Chris Magwangqana, “the appointment of the new CFO was carried out in full view of the provisions of Municipal Legislative Framework and Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.”
 
In her previous positions, Mrs. Ntshanga was responsible for the improvement of favourable audit outcomes in Lukhanji, KSD and Mnquma local municipalities respectively.
