‘May this festive season be one of reflection’ – mayor

Another protracted year has swiftly passed, leaving us overwhelmed with its burdens, challenges, achievements and tribulations.

2017 marks the first year of the current administration and, naturally, teething problems have been present.

However, we must appreciate the efforts and dedicated team of the entire city towards the transition.

The year has seen a number of major initiatives implemented, which seek to strengthen service delivery and build from the gains and achievements of the previous administration.

The City of Ekurhuleni continues to strengthen its identity as a synergised and integrated city, getting rid of the “nine towns” stigma.

Through the Siyaqhuba rapid service delivery programme, we have managed to harness relations with our communities.

It is with humble appreciation that the programme has become synonymous with service delivery.

The commitment demonstrated by our departments indicates that Siyaqhuba can only grow from strength to strength.

Our joint efforts in all levels of the city will ensure this outcome.

I wish to thank each and every one of you for making the City of Ekurhuleni function as effectively as possible.

Our external corporate image has improved and we maintain standards of fiscal prudence.

As we usher in the festive season, I urge everyone to rest, indulge and, more importantly, spend time with family.

During the year, we are all embroiled in the system of governance; at times this requires immense sacrifice which affects the most important institution – the family.

May this festive season be one of reflection, happiness and reconnection with loved ones.

Human capital is the engine and essence of any institution; therefore, this requires that we all take care of ourselves mentally, physically and emotionally.

Holidays are indeed an important time for such resuscitation.

Merry Christmas to fellow Christians and a wonderful and peaceful festive season to everyone.

Do remain safe and cautious during this period, as this is equally a period where roads are very busy.

Safe travels to those travelling.
