It is through effective local governance that we truly improve the quality of life for our citizens".

The Mpumalanga Assembly was also attended by the President of SALGA Cllr. Bheke Stofile, who spoke on the Update on the Key Policy Advances. "As the representative voice of local government, the National Executive Committee (NEC) has been deliberate in identifying various stakeholders as partners within the local government sphere. Recently, we met with the Minister of the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs and agreed that we should visit all nine (9) provinces together with the SALGA NEC to mobilise and work together as a team in order to change the local government narrative. Furthermore, assist municipalities across the country, especially those that are facing service delivery challenges", said Cllr. Stofile.
