Minister Ramatlhodi’s Imbizo programme heads to Mbombela community

As he continues his quest for improved provision of services by government to citizens, Minister for the Public Service and Administration, Adv. Ngoako Ramatlhodi will again meet residents of Kabokweni in Mbombela, Mpumalanga on Monday 14, November 2016 to give feedback on the issues raised during the visit to the community last year, as part of his ‘Batho Pele- putting people first’ programme.

The visit seeks to respond to service delivery challenges experienced by citizens through capacitating government institutions with the requisite skills and information to improve the level of service delivery quality.

During the engagement, the community raised issues including lack of water, roads and poor services at government service points such as the local clinic and police station. Youth also highlighted the lack of socio- economic opportunities for young people to further their education after completion of basic education.

The Imbizo will also provide the Minister with an opportunity to update the public on programmes that are being implemented to improve their lives through the Medium Term Strategic Framework (MTSF). MTSF is government’s first five year implementation plan of the National Development Plan (NDP) covering the period 2014 to 2019.

Minister Ramatlhodi’s programme is a strategic vehicle that enables the department to interact with citizens in its quest to improve service provision in support of the priorities of government. 

Members of the media are invited to the event as follows: 

Date: Monday, 14 November 2016                                         
Time: 10h00
Venue: Moyeni Ward 36 Sport Ground, Zwelitsha, Ntsikazi Zone
