How a Councillor should lead during the COVID-19 crisis




Posted: 06 April 2020

During this period of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important that Councillors continue with the provision of essential services to communities.
Councillors, also have an important role in ensuring wide-spread of the correct and validated information through consistent messaging and communication about the coronavirus as well as the Government efforts.

  • In line with the President Cyril Rampahosa’s directive, a council must have a list of Essential-Services as pronounced by the President but also in terms of the Government Gazette that clearly indicates those services classified as Essential Services and this list must be communicated to the local law enforcement agencies. Councillors are to continually advise law enforcement telephonically of any infringements you become aware of.
  • Whilst on Lockdown Councillors should continue to promote remote meeting measures such as (teleconferencing, video-conferencing, electronic surveys, WhatsApp groups to convene governance meetings). This requires Councillors be in possession of a smartphones and a Skype account where for meetings.

Whilst there has been a postponement of physical meetings such as Council Meetings and Ward Committee Meetings due to the Lockdown pronouncement councillors are to rather set up a WhatsApp Groups.  Suspend all loud-hailing but make the service available to local enforcement agencies.
