Speaker pleads for co­op­er­a­tion in hous­ing project

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS - Wise­man Mthiyane

UMH­LATHUZE Mu­nic­i­pal­ity Speaker Silondile Mkhize has pleaded with all stake­hold­ers in­volved in the city’s hous­ing de­vel­op­ment project to en­sure the project is com­pleted with­out prob­lems or de­lays.

He raised the is­sue at the sign­ing of the ‘So­cial Com­pact Agree­ment’ for Em­pan­geni’s mega hous­ing project (10 000 hous­ing units) and Du­misani Makhaye Vil­lage’s phases 6 and 8 at the Ng­welezana li­brary.

The multi-bil­lion rand hous­ing project, which was launched of­fi­cially two weeks ago, is the big­gest in the city thus far.

In­fraserv and Water­stone Coun­try Es­tate have been ap­pointed as im­ple­ment­ing agents.

Ac­cord­ing to Mkhize, the sign­ing of the co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment was key to the suc­cess of the project, as it clearly de­fines the roles and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of each mem­ber in the com­mit­tee.

‘We are happy that all the wards are rep­re­sented. We will rely on all our com­mit­tee mem­bers to pro­vide lead­er­ship if in­for­ma­tion is to be dis­sem­i­nated to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

‘To­day’s cer­e­mony reaf­firms our com­mit­ment as a city to de­liver ba­sic ser­vices to our peo­ple. We are a city at work and we are ad­dress­ing the hous­ing back­logs.’
