DEPARTMENTAL AUDIT OUTCOME FOR 2013/2014 PDF Print E-mail

MEDIA STATEMENT

04 September 2014

DEPARTMENTAL AUDIT OUTCOME FOR 2013/2014

The Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs in the Eastern Cape (COGTA-EC) is pleased to have just received “a clean bill of health” from the Auditor General in the 2013/2014 financial year. 

The clean audit (unqualified audit opinion with no findings) is due to well-oiled internal control systems, compliance with the recruitment and selection processes, adherence to supply chain management prescripts and submission of credible Annual Financial Statements (AFS) to the Auditor General’s Office. These have all been tested and found to be in line with the requisite legislation. 

We further attribute this achievement to firm leadership, good governance, necessary and functional structures being in place and compliance with laws and regulations. 

The department has also dealt with irregular, fruitless, wasteful and unauthorised expenditure, hence the achievement of the clean audit opinion.

It is worth noting that the department has been receiving unqualified audit opinions since 2009 and has got even better this time around.

We will use this positive footing to be equally firm with our municipalities to move most of them to unqualified audit opinion in their next audit cycle. 

End.

NB: Please give attribution to SG Khanyile, Superintendant General of COGTA-EC.

HUMAN DIGNITY FOR HEBE-HEBE VILLAGERS RESTORED

SUNDAY, 20 JULY 2014

ADM Headquarters

The political leadership of Amathole District Municipality [ADM], the newly established national Department of Water and Sanitation office and Mnquma Local Municipality joined hands in honour and memory of the late Nelson Mandela. Marking 67 years of Madiba's contribution to public service, the entourage which also included ADM staff members, helped restore the human dignity of Hebehebe when they ventured into an extraordinary business of physically building 67 ablution facilities for the communities therein.

The intervention that was received with great ecstasy and ululation, benefited 77 families who for the first time will enjoy decent ablution facilities. ADM Executive Mayor Nomasikizi Konza in the company of Deputy Minister for Water and Sanitation Honourable Pamela Tshwete and Mnquma Local Municipality Mayor Baba Ganjana, were hard at work building the facilities that are sure to improve living conditions of Hebehebe villagers.

NELSON MANDELA MONTH KEY MESSAGES PDF Print E-mail

BRIEF:

 

Every year on 18 July South Africans together with the international community honour our former president and international icon Nelson Mandela. We embrace Madiba’s values and honour his legacy through humanitarian acts and initiatives that acknowledge his never-ending quest to change the world for the better.

The overarching objective of Nelson Mandela International Day is to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better, and in doing so build a global movement for good. Ultimately it seeks to empower communities everywhere to “Take Action; Inspire Change; Make Every Day a Mandela Day.”

President Jacob Zuma in his State of the Nation Address announced that this year Mandela Day would be celebrated by working to clean up the South Africa. The President encouraged all South Africans to dedicate 67 minutes of their time to clean South Africa.

President Zuma said: “Let us begin planning for a major clean-up of our cities, town, township, villages, schools and beautify every part of our country”.

Nelson Mandela International Day was officially adopted by the United Nations in November 2009 as an annual international day. The UN noted it Mandela's "values and his dedication to the service of humanity" and acknowledging his contribution "to the struggle for democracy internationally and the promotion of a culture of peace throughout the world".

The idea is to do something that will benefit those around us on Nelson Mandela International Day was inspired by Mandela himself at his 90th birthday celebration in London's Hyde Park in 2008, when he said: "It is time for new hands to lift the burdens. It is in your hands now." Today the Nelson Mandela International Day campaign asks that individuals, groups and corporates pledge 67 minutes of their time on 18 July, and every day thereafter, to give back.

This year's Nelson Mandela International Day is particularly symbolic for South Africans as it is the first one since former president Nelson Mandela's passing. It offers South Africans and the world, an occasion to honour the ethos of the late former President Mandela in the year that also marks South Africa's 20 Years of Freedom.

CONDOLENCE MESSAGE FROM THE ADM EXECUTIVE MAYOR, CLLR NOMASIKIZI KONZA PDF Print E-mail
Written by Amathole District Municipality   
Thursday, 12 June 2014 13:37

On Saturday 7 June 2014, South Africa we woke up to the saddening news of the passing of one the veterans of our liberation struggle, Mama Epainette Nomaka Mbeki, mother of former President Thabo Mbeki and wife of the late and distinguished freedom fighter, Mr. Govan “Oom Gov” Mbeki. 

On behalf of Amathole District Municipality (ADM) Council, Management and Staff, we would like to extend our deeply felt condolences to the Mbeki family and all those affected by her passing. 

Ma Mbeki as was affectionally known to many, hailed from the rivers and the rich soil of Mbhashe Local Municipality (LM), the biggest LM of the rural ADM. She was undoubtedly the pride and a legend of Amathole. Her ethos and uncompromising principles were rooted on ‘Vuk’ukuzenzele’, a brainchild of the late Tata Nelson Mandela.  

She was a beacon of hope to the rural communities of Amathole and beyond. She successfully mobilized rural women and communities into small businesses and agricultural co-operatives, with a sole aim of fighting poverty and unemployment. We have indeed lost a distinguished community builder, an activist, a true and proud South African citizen. 

May Ma Mbeki’s wisdom with which she led, and the lessons she so generously shared, continue to guide and inspire us all eternally. 

We will forever be grateful and indebted to this noble stalwart for her passion, compassion and love that she had for the people of Ngcingwane, Mbhashe, Amathole, the Eastern Cape and South Africa.

The best tribute we can make as the District is to ensure that we continue her legacy by getting involved in the projects that were dear to her heart and finish what she started.

This we will do through the Mbhashe Local Municipality and other stakeholders. We will also continue and intensify our duties of bringing water and sanitation in rural areas, as she would have expected.

Siyabulela Mama wethu, ngokusithanda, ngobubele bakho, nange ntsebenzo yakho engumMangaliso.

Siyabulela ngokuthi uzenze idini, uthi nokuba ibifanele ukuba ugcakamele ilanga unabile uphumle, usuke uxhabashe ugabadele uhambele iintsapho zase Amathole, umaphikana unjalo.

Sibulela nakwi khaya lika Mbeki, ngokuthi lisinikezele ngesisikhukukazi, lingasivimbi koko lisivumele ukuba sincance njengokuba senzile.

Wanga ungaphula ngoxolo.

Sohlala sikuthanda kwaye sikukhumbula.

Enkosi
