Fetakgomo Tubatse Municipality concludes third quarter performance review

The Exco Lekgotla is a platform where heads of department led by the Municipal Manager give reports for their respective departments to the Executive Committee indicating successes and challenges for the quarter. It is also an opportunity for the departments to give progress on resolutions to map a way forward on areas that were not achieved.

When opening the session the Mayor Cllr Maudu Phokane congratulated Mrs Busane NP for being appointed as the Municipal Manager of the institution. Mrs Busane was appointed after the Municipality operated for 9 months without an Accounting Officer. The Mayor said that the appointment of the Municipal Manager will help to stabilise the administration and take the Municipality to greater heights. The Council will support the Municipal Manager to execute the mandate given to her.

We are meeting here today after the burial of the struggle stalward Mama Winnie Madikizela Mandela who was the champion of human rights and fought for the liberation of the poor` said Cllr Phokane. He further said that the Municipality must emulate her legacy by accelerating the provision of basic services to our communities.  This should remain central to all the objectives of the Municipality.

When presenting the overall performance of the Municipality, the Accounting Officer Ms Busane NP indicated that the performance has improved from 58% in the second quarter to 72% for the third quarter. This is an indication that the Municipality is moving towards the targets set at the beginning of the financial year. The following are the milestones achieved

  • Completion of Morokadieta access bridge, Tjate access bridge and Dithamaga access bridge
  • Tukakgomo access road – contractor appointed and busy on site establishment;

Despite the success story, there are still challenges which the Municipality is facing in terms of the provision of basic services. The Municipality will work hard together with private sector and government to address some of the challenges.
