A Municipality That Cares
Success is not achieved overnight, but through a well-designed strategic plan, accompanied by a realistic and achievable operational plan. You can have the best plans, but they do not implement themselves, you need a well-oiled team of dynamic politicians, staff and competent administrative leadership. The achievement highlighted in this document speaks to the promises we have made to our citizens within the Witzenberg.
From a business perspective our picturesque and fertile Valley, Witzenberg, is best known for its fruit and wine products. The region is also well-known for producing other agriculturally-linked products such as olives and grain, as well as for producing beef and pork products. Horse and cattle stud farms are also found within our municipal area.
Good governance, affordable services, community safety, housing, local economic development, job creations and a blossoming environment was always the mission for the Witzenberg area. We have not achieved all our goals, but we have achieved the most important milestones in terms of our priority listing. This document will highlight these achievements during this term of governance, keep it and be proud of it.
We as citizens of the Witzenberg are faced with severe challenges. Just to mention a few of these challenges - seasonal work, escalating criminal activities, school drop outs, social ill manifesting rapidly in our communities, gangster activities and financial hardship. This is what we are faced with as part of our daily lives, but we must acknowledge this is ills that is inherent to a predominant rural area. Through all of this as a collective we ensure that a bouquet of quality services is being rendered to the whole of the Witzenberg with assistance of our paying customers big or small.
Our vision should always be to improving the quality of life for everyone, a Municipality that cares for its community, creating growth and opportunities in abundance. I want to say thank you to every business, every citizen, and every community leader for your contribution you have made during our period of governance.
Someone once told me, the most unstoppable machine once it gets moving, is a train. The only way to stop it, is to derail the train, let us not derail what we have achieved, “lets steam forth to a brighter future”.
