FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
 
ADM EXECUTIVE MAYOR LIVES UP TO HER PROMISE ON THE RESUSCITATION OF ASAP
 
 
ADM HEADQUARTERS, THURSDAY, 06 JULY 2017.
In her delivery of the State Of District Address (SODA) on 29 June 2017, Amathole District Municipality (ADM) Executive Mayor Cllr Nomfusi Winnie Nxawe announced the district’s plan to revive and simultaneously speed up service delivery on the provision of decent toilets for its communities.
This pronouncement became a reality as from 03 July 2017 when she launched the contractor appointment phase in Raymond Mhlaba and Amahlathi Local Municipalities, followed by Mbhashe LM on 04 July 2017 where 6 local contractors from Madwaleni Village benefitted from the programme. The last contractor-launching phase took place in Mnquma LM on 05 July 2017.
With this programme, Nxawe said it would contribute to job creation, “particularly for the youth and women in the respective areas of the district.”
To date, a total of 72 Incubator Contractors have been appointed as part of the Accelerated Sanitation Project (ASP) for the Erection of 8300 VIP Structures to the VALUE of R 91 million. 
A good example of the programme has already been witnessed at Elliotdale’s Madwaleni Village contractor launch for instance, wherein ADM’s Portfolio Head on Water, Infrastructure and Sanitation Cllr Laverne Jacobs, representing the Executive Mayor Nxawe; confirmed that an agreement was reached between ADM and contractors to not only employ 10 locals per project but also ensure that the local workers are paid R400 per completed structure.
In other words, the six out of 28 contractors appointed from Madwaleni Village will result in 60 local community members getting temporary employment. According to Jacobs, in Madwaleni Village alone, 565 structures will be built.
All contractors are expected to be on site this week ending 07 July 2017 and to complete the erection of the toilets by end of August 2017.

ADM EXECUTIVE MAYOR TABLES HER FIRST 2017 STATE OF THE DISTRICT ADDRESS

 

 

HEAD OFFICE,

THURSDAY, 29 JUNE 2017

 

Today marked a milestone in the history of the district when Honorable Nomfusi Winnie Nxawe, Amathole District Municipality Executive Mayor, delivered her first State Of the District Address (SODA) in Great Kei in which she reported on key projects that the district will be implementing as from next month for the next five years.

 

With 2017 having been declared as the “Year of Oliver Tambo”, Cllr Nxawe said the district would ensure that relevant programmes that relate to the unity “for radical socio-economic transformation”, in accordance with the national theme, are clearly stated and taken to the communities.

 

“OR Tambo might be gone but his views and beliefs will live through our actions for centuries to come and just like him, we should be  disciplined at all times while promoting unity, as well as ensure that we serve our people without expecting any favours in return”- she said.

 

The venue was packed to capacity and representatives of the provincial government, parastatals as well as other key stakeholders witnessed the arrival of the Executive Mayor supported by the district’s leadership as well as Community Safety Band, the Traffic and Fire departments.

 

In her address, Nxawe said though recently joined the district, the Council will continue in the footsteps and milestones of those before them. By this, she also referred to ensuring that the district maintains its unqualified financial reports by the South African Auditor General through reconfigured administrative and governance systems that will strengthen all round accountability and provision of quality services to the communities.

The 2016|17 financial year marked Amathole District Municipality’s sixth (6th) unqualified audit outcome, consecutively.

 

Further pronouncing on some of the service delivery plans on hand, Cllr Nxawe declared the resuscitation of the district’s Accelerated Sanitation Project ( ASAP) which will see substantial VIP toilet structures being erected between July and August 2017.

 

“We have appointed 72 incubator contractors as part of ASAP for the erection of 8300 VIP structures to the value of R91 million for the Raymond Mhlaba, Amahlathi, Mnquma and Mbhashe Local Municipalities. Contractors are expected to be on site next week and to complete the project by end of August 2017” – she said.
