The Waterberg District Executive Mayor, Morris Mataboge, said strategies developed at municipal gatherings should enable the broader region to find solutions to challenges.  Mataboge said this while addressing the third IDP Representative Forum in Vaalwater’s Leseding Community Hall on Sunday, 18 March. 

The executive mayor disclosed that the municipality did not have enough revenue for the 2018/2019 financial year, and should explore sourcing funding from the private sector.

“We must engage the public and the private sector, especially the mining houses, to finance some of our projects.  Let us go back to basics and make sure that we deliver quality services to our communities,” he said.  

Traditional leaders from various tribal communities attended the event.  From Tuesday 13 March to Wednesday 14 March, the district municipality engaged stakeholders in a Strategic Planning Session at the Euphoria Golf and Lyfestyle Estate in Mookgophong.

Municipal spokespesperson, Pat Malete, said the summit was aimed at moving the municipality forward.
