ADM EXECUTIVE MAYOR WELCOMES R6 BILLION DROUGHT RELIEF INTERVENTION BY THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT

 

ADM HEADQUARTERS, 22 FEBRUARY 2018,

In reaction to the allocation of R6 billion provisional drought relief funding aimed at addressing resistant drought in the Eastern Cape, Western Cape and Northern Cape provinces, ADM Executive Mayor Cllr. Nomfusi Winnie Nxawe has welcomed the announcement by the Minister of Finance Honourable Malusi Gigaba. The announcement was made in Minister Gigaba’s Budget Speech delivered in Parliament on Wednesday, 21 February 2018.

 

“On behalf of the people of the Amathole District Municipality, I wish to welcome with a great deal of relief, the allocation of R6 billion drought funding. This will go a long way in assisting the municipality in dealing with the adversity of drought in the district. It is our hope that the funding will be immediately available to our coffers as we are sometimes delayed by our own bureaucratic systems in effective dealing with disaster related interventions,” said ADM Executive Mayor, Her Worship Nomfusi Winnie Nxawe.

 

During his Budget Speech, Minister Gigaba announced that: “A provisional allocation of R6 billion has been set aside in 2018/19 for several purposes including drought relief and to augment public infrastructure investment.” He also announced an additional allocation of R473 million for disaster relief grants for provinces and municipalities.

 

ADM Executive Mayor has further commended the National Treasury for its inclusive budget speech that has prioritised the following sectors:

 

R792 on basic education for the medium term;

An additional R57 billion for higher education over a medium term, adding that “returning students at university will have their loans for 2018 onwards converted to a bursary”;

R31.7 billion for Educational Infrastructure Grant;

R240 billion for National Health Insurance (NHI) by 2021;  

R581.7 million for the black producer commercialisation; and

Relaxation of public procurement policies and regulations to support black economic empowerment, industrialisation and development of small businesses.

 

In the amendments of the Preferential Procurement Regulations which became effective in April 2017, Minister Gigaba said that “key changes include targeted procurement from designated groups, including township and rural enterprises, black owned and youth enterprises, cooperatives and people with disabilities….compulsory sub-contracting to designated groups in all projects or contracts above R30 million.”

 

“We further wish to commend and thank Premier Phumulo Masualle for heeding our cry for financial assistance, by escalating our plight to the national government. All of these interventions, are indicative of caring government and our resolve to address the triple challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality,” concluded Nxawe.

 

Ends.

MATTER OF FACT - NON-PAYMENT OF "SIYENZA" SUB-CONTRACTORS.

MEDIA/PUBLIC NOTICE

 

FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION 

 

MATTER OF FACT - NON-PAYMENT OF "SIYENZA" SUB-CONTRACTORS.

 

 

ADM Headquarters, Wednesday, 21 February 2018

 

It appears that despite repeated explanations given since 2015 regarding the issue of the non-payment of sub-contractors on the ADM sanitation project, it is necessary to clarify the issue and put it to rest:

 

The sanitation project that the contractors claim to have been involved in was the ADM sanitation backlog eradication project which aimed to construct over 66 700 Ventilated Pit Latrine (VIP) toilets in 2015. The Siyenza Group (Siyenza) was appointed for the overall implementation of the Project, for which it was paid per toilet built. Siyenza contracted sub-contractors to dig the required toilet pits and to assemble the   toilet top structures.  Siyenza had indicated to ADM that the sub-contractors were entitled to payment from Siyenza on condition that the specific number of toilets had been installed satisfactory, as agreed between the Siyenza Group and the sub-contractors. 

 

The ADM at no time had or assumed any contractual relationship with Siyenza’s sub-contractors which would render the municipality liable for payment as is once again being claimed.  The ADM has no record of who Siyenza sub-contracted with, nor of the payments made by Siyenza to sub-contractors.   Accordingly, the claims of non-payment being made by sub-contractors against the ADM are misdirected and should be directed to Siyenza.

ADM LEADERSHIP VOW TO BUILD A SMART DISTRICT BY 2058

MEDIA RELEASE   

 FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION

 ADM LEADERSHIP VOW TO BUILD A SMART DISTRICT BY 2058    

Saturday, 17 February 2018  

 

At its five day Institutional Strategic Planning Session held at Mphekweni Beach Resort in Ngqushwa Local Municipality, Amathole District Municipality (ADM) leadership has heeded President Cyril Ramaphosa’s call to “build a more prosperous and equitable society,” when it  adopted VISION 2058, a blue print towards building “A SMART DISTRICT.” Through the 2018 DECLARATION, ADM leadership has vowed to restore the institution’s former glory, in a concerted effort to reposition BRAND ADM.

 

“As we enter a new path of building a smart district, the people of Amathole can look forward to better living conditions, rural economic growth, sustainable basic services and a society with equal economic opportunities. Working together with our communities and social partners, we have declared war on poverty, unemployment and inequality. Moreover, we want to turn ADM into a district of economic opportunities for the generations to come. We will deal decisively with today’s challenges to create a better tomorrow,” said a resolute ADM Executive Mayor, Her Worship Cllr. Nomfusi Winnie Nxawe.

 

Among the distinguished guests who attended the ADM’s Strategic Planning Session were the MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Mr. Fikile Xasa, Local Mayors from six local municipalities under the ADM, traditional leaders as well as the Chairperson of ASPIRE Mr. Nkosinathi Mbende. 

 

ADM’s 2018 DECLARATION, was adopted a day after His Excellency, President Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa delivered his maiden State of the Nation Address (SoNA) in Parliament, calling on all South Africans to be “AGENTS OF CHANGE” as the country celebrates the Year of Isithwalandwe, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. Had he lived, Nelson Mandela would have been 100 years on the 18th of July 2018. This year, South Africans will also celebrate the centenary of another giantess of the liberation struggle Mama Albertina Nontsikelelo Sisulu.

 

“We honour this son and this daughter of the African soil in a year of change, in a year of renewal, in a year of hope. We should put all the negativity that has dogged our country behind us because a new dawn is upon us. We have been given a responsibility to build a new nation, to confront the injustice of the past and inequalities of the present,” President Ramaphosa said.

 

Responding to the “most devastating drought in a century” President Ramaphosa has reassured South Africans that, “the drought situation in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Northern Cape has been elevated to a national state of disaster. This gives national government the authority to manage and coordinate our response nationally with support from all provinces.”

 

 

In reacting to President Ramaphosa’s reassuring speech, ADM Executive Mayor Nomfusi Winnie Nxawe has welcomed his planned visits to “meet with provincial and local government leadership to ensure that the state, in its entirety, responds to the pressing needs of our people.”

 

“We welcome the President’s invitation to meet with the local government leadership. It presents an opportune time for us to share our new vision, in how we hope to deal with resilient drought and multiply the fortunes of our rural economy. We want the national government to assist us in fulfilling our dreams of building a smart district and a conducive environment for the creation of jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities for our unemployed youth through agriculture, tourism, localised manufacturing and the 4th Industrial Revolution,” Nxawe said.

 

ADM Municipal Manager Mr. Thandekile Mnyimba has reassured the ADM leadership and the people of Amathole of management’s renewed commitment to turn-around the state of the district.

 

“With a great deal of honour and humility, we would like to assure the leadership of this great institution, of our unwavering commitment to work harder and smarter, in turning – around the fortunes of the ADM. Our current financial and socio-economic challenges will not deter us from pursuing “VISION 2058”. When fully implemented, “VISION 2058” will change the lives of our people like never before while building a value based organization. It is a challenge that this current management has received with an overwhelming zeal and resolve,” said a visibly elated Mnyimba.
