Thabo Mofutsanyana district uplifts its municipalities

The executive mayor of the Thabo Mofutsanyana District Municipality, Dr Balekile Mzangwa, has completed various development projects tailor-made to respond to the needs of each municipality in the district.

Mzangwa handed over a road at Nketoane municipality in Reitz last week, which was completed in less than a year. Handing over the project to Nketoane Local Municipality mayor, Masukulu Molapisi, Mzangwa said: “The district has responded to your request by constructing this road and it’s now up to the municipality to take care of it. This road must be looked after and maintained when necessary.”

He also applauded the contractors for their efficient work in constructing the road.

“The project was completed on time and it is of good quality. It is particularly pleasing to work with people of your calibre, who are accountable and responsible”.

The residents of Nketoane has benefited immensely from the project. Thirty five members of the community were employed in the project for a period of one year.

One of the residents, Lefu Sebeko, expressed pleasure at having been given an opportunity to work on the project.

“In addition to being able to put bread on the table, I have also acquired some skills that will make it easier for me to be employed whenever an opportunity arises itself. I have learnt many things; I can also become a contractor and employ others.”

Molapisi promised to take care of the road.

“We are very happy that our district has met us half way; we will make sure that we take good care of this project so that it benefits even the next generation.”
