New year message
As we begin with the year 2016, I take this opportunity to welcome everybody back at work.
We hope the foregone year and the festive season have given us a much needed break to rest and recharge our strength and prepare for the new year.
We are pleased that we start this year with pride we derive from our delivery achievements by all departments. More of our people now have access to portable water; a basic service that continues to significantly free more of our people from the stranglehold of poverty and under-development. Fewer people are fetchers of water and hewers of wood because of the change and civilization brought by our service delivery accomplishments.
We are also delighted that we start the new year with added pride of having achieved unqualified audit opinion in the year under review. This confirms that we are right on track in perfecting our financial management systems; and we believe this achievement inspires us all to work even smarter towards clean audit.
We also take this opportunity to welcome two new executive managers and other new members of staff who have joined the institution in the month of January. We believe they will be a great addition to the team and play a role in building a winning district and a true home of excellence and opportunities.
Let us unite and work together as a team, share knowledge, empower each other and build a dynamic workforce that is responsive to the diverse needs of our people.
Let us continue to work harder in making Capricorn a liveable, peaceful and a friendlier model district for our residents and visitors. Let us recommit our wisdom, expertise and enthusiasm and make 2016 better than 2015.
Once again, the council of Capricorn District Municipality wishes all of you a prosperous 2016!
Cllr Gilbert Kganyago
