MDB 4 Umzumbe strengthens Public Participation  

Umzumbe Municipality continues to strengthen its public consultations mechanism through trainings of its ward committees. The Municipality recently held a three days training sessions for cluster B and D ward committees on module 5, which intends to capacitate them with skills of making inputs to the municipality’s development activities.

Department of Co-operative Government & Traditional Affairs (CoGta) mandated all municipalities to train ward committees, to enable them to participate in all municipal affairs which include preparation, implementation and the review of Integrated Development Plan (IDP) and municipal budget. Out of 8 modules that the ward committees has to be trained on, Umzumbe is the only municipality on module 5, ahead of all other municipalities in the province of KwaZulu Natal.

This paints a clear picture that the local community of Umzumbe participate sufficiently to the speeding up of service delivery.  Offering his message support, the Speaker of Umzumbe, Cllr Sizwe Ngcobo congratulated all the ward committees and the councillors who attended the training.

“I would like to thank all the ward committees and Councillors in attendance, you are very lucky to receive this magnificent training, because public participation plays a critical role in deepening democracy and promoting good governance, and you will be able to make a remarkable change to your communities through inputs on the municipality’s Integrated Development Plan and budget,” Speaker said.

Ngcobo further mentioned that citizens’ involvement in governance processes ensures that their experiential and grounded perspectives inform government on their needs and how these needs can best be addressed.

Mr Gerald Gasa, ward committee member from ward-5, noted that, ever since they received these trainings from the municipality, they are able to assist their communities with information and service delivery issues, together with the Ward Councillor.

“These trainings have developed our community working skills. We now understand our roles as ward committees and how to relay information and work with the Councillor to identify social needs, and how those needs can be addressed,” Gasa said.

More than 100 people attended the training held at the Margate Hotel, including all ward Councillors. All ward committee members who participated in these trainings will receive certificates after completion of the course on module 8. Certification of the course is accredited by Local Government Sector Education Training Authority (LGSETA).
