Umzumbe Municipality’s programme of taking government to the people was a resounding success as people interacted face to face in all 5 clusters with His Worship, The Mayor of Umzumbe Municipality, Cllr S T Gumede. These Izimbizo were hosted jointly with Ugu District Municipality and other government departments.

Thabani Mfeka from ward 18 said, “We as small business owners have problems in sourcing funding for our businesses, we would appreciate if the Municipality can assists us with this.” Cllr Gumede responded by saying that Mfeka and other aspiring small business owners should contact the Local Economic Development office so that they be considered for the Incubator program which is aimed at developing Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMME) and where they will be trained and equipped with the right tools to tackle such problems.
In all the Izimbizo school uniforms were handed over to pupils from schools. A total of 1815 pupils benefitted with new school uniform.
