Freedom Day

 


Posted: 03 May 2018

Share:

This year’s freedom day marked the 24th since the liberation year of the country in 1994. Our liberation has ushered in a democratic dispensation which, by the world’s standards, has been termed a young democracy so far.

This dispensation has come with great possibilities which include better provisions of electricity, water, roads, housing, clinics and schools by government in the local government space. However, the dispensation is not without challenges which include incremental crime, unemployment and poverty.
Government, with its three spheres, local government in particular, is thriving to actualize the freedom of the people in terms of the transformation of their material condition and spatial terms.

Through its 2017-2022 Strategy, SALGA intends to intensify support to municipalities for a greater service delivery and betterment of life’s quality for the people. 2018 marks the advancement of the implementation of this strategy. Further, SALGA is reorganizing itself internally in order to position itself most strategically in order to facilitate a much needed community engagement, social cohesion and local government development.

It is also hoped that the leadership of South Africa in whatever level or sector will derive inspiration from the knowledge that this year marks the centenary of Nelson Mandela and Albertina Sisulu, the founding leaders of our democracy. As such, it is expected that all public servants will multiply their efforts to make South Africa work towards a politically stable, economically prosperous and socially dynamic country.
