ADM AGRI EXPO A SUCCESS

ADM AGRI EXPO A SUCCESS  

 

ADM HEADQUARTERS, 14 NOVEMBER 2018 

 

 

 

The Amathole District Municipality held its 7th Annual Agri Expo at the Willowvale in Mbhashe Local Municipality yesterday, 13 November 2018. The partnership with Eastern Cape Economic Development (ECDC), Department of Rural Development and Agrarian Reform(DRDAR), Mbhashe Local Municipality, Umtiza Farmers Co-Operation, as well as the business sector and other stakeholders, ensured that ADM Expo was a success.

 

 “The expo was a great success and people attended in numbers. The objective was to expose our small scale/emerging farmers to opportunities to link their produce to present business sectors to forge strong relations in respect of breeding and farming techniques, machinery and equipments, financial assistance as well as trading”- said ADM Executive Mayor Nomfusi Winnie Nxawe.

As stakeholders took turns in sharing key aspects of their respective business focus, farmers received all the relevant exposure they may have required. 

 

 “It gives me great pleasure to see that we have cross cutting generation attending this year’s expo. If I could just focus on the youth, I’d say they must take the baton from us as in now, today to work and plough the land our forebears left behind. Our wealth lies within us as the people of Amathole District” - said Nxawe.

 As LMs competed for the prestigious number one spot for the best stall and livestock breeding, the judges had a tough time nominating this year’s winner.  Mbhashe LM was one of the competitors and took the first place winning the rotating trophy from last year’s winner, Ngqushwa LM, followed by Mnquma and Great Kei in second and third place, respectively.

 ADM STAFF LENDS A HELPING HAND

 

ADM HEADQUARTERS, 02ND NOVEMBER 2018

 

On Wednesday morning of 31 October 2018, an Amathole District Municipality employee, Miss Lindelwa Payiya came across a plight of a stranger over the waves while listening to the East London based Link FM.

 

After hearing a sad recount of one Sylvia Cophiso’s ordeal, Payiya took it upon herself to do something to bring a measure of change in the woman’s life. With no job and mouth to feed, Cophiso showed courage as she braved fear when she asked for help from any of the FM’s listeners. Cophiso’s story is that she had a son, currently in grade 10, whose dire living circumstances threatened to stand in the way of him writing his exams, let alone finishing school. “As I was listening to this story over the radio, I told myself that I needed to do something as a parent and that is when I called in the radio and asked for Silvia Cophiso’s contact details. Thereafter, I shared her sad story among ADM staff, in hope that we could all do something to change the family of two’s situation, albeit temporary. My colleagues were gracious and generous in their contributions to buy not only shoes but additional grocery items as well”- said Payiya.

 

An evidently excited Payiya gathered some of her colleagues yesterday and drove out to Frankford to deliver the gifts to the Cophiso family. Shocked to the core by the unexpected visit and contribution, particularly from civil servants, Sylvia Cophiso said- “It’s been three [3] days since we had food in [our] house and my child was losing hope on his dreams because he couldn't go to school barefoot. I want to thank the ADM staff for their generosity as today not only will my child and I eat, but he will also be able to go to school to write his exams.”

Today the Grade 10 learner, Sesethu Cophiso from Frankford is writing his exams and has food in his stomach because of caring ADM employees.

ADM REJECTS DISPATCH ARTICLE

ADM HEADQUARTERS, MONDAY 29TH OCTOBER 2018

Whilst we appreciate the role played by the media in bridging information gap between government and its citizens, it is our view that proper research prior to publishing articles that have the potential of tarnishing the image of local government is critical. In the case of Amathole District Municipality (ADM) the Daily Dispatch front page article “25 CFO’s do not meet standards” published on Friday the 26th October 2018, is in fact far from the truth, as the institution announced through the very same media, the appointment of a qualified and capable CFO Mr. Moathlodi Lucky Mosala.

We would like to place it on record that Mr Mosala has 18 years wealth of experience in local government and 10 of these at the helm of municipal finances. He (Mosala) holds a Cost and Management Accounting Diploma, a Post grad diploma in Accounting (GRAP), Certificate Programme in Municipal Development (CPMD), Certificate in Municipal Finance Management Program (MFMP), a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Admin, and Masters Degree in Business Admin. The ADM thus rejects claims by the Daily Dispatch that its CFO is unqualified. The municipality is steadfast in its implementation of the newly adopted Municipal Turn Around Strategy (MTAS) which is a 5 year document aimed at improving sound financial management, good governance, service delivery etc.

All enquiries to be addressed to: Noni Madikizela-Vuso Mobile 082 419 0161 | 043 783 2500 | This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
