EASTERN CAPE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL DESCENDS ON ADM TO LAUNCH MASIPHATHISANE AND THE 16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM FOR NO VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN 
 
ADM Headquarters, Monday, 21 November 2016
 
The Premier of the Eastern Cape Province, Hon. Phumulo Masualle, Honourable MECs as well as the Amathole District Municipality (ADM) Executive Mayor Cllr. Nomfusi Nxawe will this week descend on the Mnquma Local Municipality to officially launch Operation Masiphathisane and the 16 Days of Activism for no violence against women and children. This historic event will be held at Centane Town Hall, Ward 30 in the Mnquma Local Municipality.
 
Premier Masualle will on Friday, 25th of November lead a provincial delegation to launch what many view as a “game-changer” in service delivery, an Integrated Service Delivery Model popularly known as #OperationMasiphathisane. This main event will be preceded by an array of events aimed at enhancing public participation on delivery of services across ADM.
 
Speaking at an Integrated Councilor Induction Programme in August this year, Masualle called on councilors to work together on bettering service delivery in our communities. “We need to stop failing our people by working in silos. In the spirit of Masiphathisane, let us work together to create better communities”, he said.
 
Meanwhile, Hon. Masualle will also launch a provincial campaign on the 16 Days Activism for no violence against women and children. Themed: “Count Me In: Together Moving a Non-Violent South Africa Forward”, this year’s campaign on the 16 Days of Activism for no violence against women and children, calls on the communities to decisively take action against violence to women and children. Community dialogues on violence against women and children will be held across South Africa to create a platform for communities to discuss this national scourge while finding requisite and lasting solutions. 
 
The dialogue sessions respond to the provincial Provincial Develop Plan (PDP) Vision 2030 which emphasises “building safer communities through an integrated approach”.
 
In other series of events in ADM this week, MECs from the Eastern Cape Government, ADM Executive Mayor and senior provincial government and municipal officials, will also be hard at work engaging various communities on service delivery and public participation dialogues.
