Capricorn District Municipality held a public consultation on municipal Sport and Air Quality By-laws with the residents of Ga-Mothapo. The consultation took place on 11 September 2017 at Ga-Mothapo Moshate as part of ensuring that the community is well consulted, participate and make inputs and comment on the governance processes of the municipality.
The session took place during a traditional Council meeting led by Kgoshigadi Moremadi Mothapo. These was a measure to ensure that representatives from all communities within Ga-Mothapo through the traditional council and Mantona were present and were given a responsibility to spread the word further to ensure that the community make inputs and comments before the closing date of 30 September 2017.
The district municipality led by Speaker Cllr Nakedi Lekganyane and Chief Whip Matome Masoga were afforded an opportunity to make presentations on the by-laws outlining the definitions, objectives, application of by-laws, activities, tariffs, subscriptions, penalties and other general matters. The sport by-law in particular is aim to promote access to facilities in rural areas for the community to enjoy healthy lifestyle through the established gym at Ga-Mothapo, which is a well equipped facility located at Ga-Ramogale village.
The facility boasts a wide range of exercise equipment and aerobics studio for residents to use at their convenience. CDM wishes to speed up processes to get it opened and it was for this reason that the Municipality invited all residents to the consultation to determine membership fees payable in order to maintain the facility and pay wages for staff and other costs.
