Umzumbe Municipality gets extra MIG Funding

There is a renewed hope to the Umzumbe Municipality communities who did not fit into the Municipal Infrastructure Grant for the current financial year. The news of extra R15 million MIG funding that the municipality received was a huge relief because it will go an extra mile in ensuring that the municipality contributes more into its infrastructure upgrades. Umzumbe Mayor Cllr ST Gumede said, “There are more communities that will benefit from this funding.”

Ms Nokuthula Mgijima, Municipal Manager said, “This is a milestone for Umzumbe Municipality as it is the first time that we received extra funding in the same financial year.” She added that the allocation that was received has been allocated to deal with the ongoing road infrastructure upgrades. “This extra funding will go to the roads we felt are very important but could not fit them in the original MIG funding,” added Mgijima. She stressed the fact that this funding is received because we utilize all our MIG funding, “And we can account for every cent of it and the clean audit we received speaks volume to that effect.”

Above the MIG funding the municipality also received R30 million rands funding to deal with disaster damaged roads. “We received a R8.2 million rands emergency funding to deal with very worse damaged roads. We now received R30 million rand to rehabilitate and construct the roads that were damaged due to the disaster,” said Mrs Nomvuyo Lushaba, Disaster Manager.

Mr Bonga Mzila, Manager PMU said that the R30 million will be received in 3 phases in the next 3 financial years. “This financial year 2014/2015 we received R10 million, 2015/2016 we will receive R11 095 887 and 2016/2017 we will receive R10 million.”

Umzumbe Municipality Spokesperson Mr Trevor Khanyile said that there is a total of 9 infrastructure projects that includes Guquka Bridge, Mfazazana Bridge that will be constructed and rehabilitated and it includes the following roads Magabha Access road in ward 19, Mdletshe Access road in ward 6 and Sgananda Access road in ward 19. “If there is a need for extra money in the construction of these roads the municipality will cover the difference,” he concluded.
