Executive Mayor Shares Vision

At a recent meeting, the newly elected Executive Mayor of the ZF Mgcawu District Municipality, Councillor Roy Olyn outlined his vision for the District to the personnel. The Speake of the District, Councillor Moses Moalosi as well as the Municipal Manager, Mr Gilbert Lategan accompanied the Executive Mayor. The meeting focused on highlighting the good work done by the staff, especially given the award received by the District Municipality from the Office of the Auditor General for having achieved a Clean Audit for the 2017/2018 financial year.

This clean audit is not only the sixth consecutive one received by the District but also the ZF Mgcawu District Municipality is the only Municipality to have obtained such a milestone in the Northern Cape. “We have indeed established a solid foundation and this is due to our predecessors who have challenged us to set even higher standards and if we are to tackle these challenges, we need to reflect on this foundation,” the Executive Mayor emphasized.

Councillor Olyn agreed that respect for the Law, monitoring and oversight by the political leadership plays a major role in the good management of the organization and Council’s role in achieving its goals. “If these basic principles of accountability, build around a central theme of strong internal control and good governance are in place, the Municipality will at all times be able to reach higher heights,” he said. The vision of the Executive Mayor is in line with the direction the Province is moving towards of establishing a “modern, growing and successful” District. At the end of the meeting both the Mayor and the Speaker made a commitment to the staff that all role-players will work together to maintain the District’s vision and mission of being a centre of excellence.
