ANC CAUCUS ACCOUNTS TO THE COMMUNITY OF WARD 60 AND 103
11 February 2020
October is Transport Month. ANC Ekurhuleni Caucus’ Chief Whip Cllr Jongizizwe Dlabathi and the entire Exco Whippery members conducted a site inspection on IRPTN project in Tembisa on Friday, 04 October 2019.
Through the programme Taking Caucus to the People (TCP), the purpose was to enforce a strong political oversight as we monitor and assess service delivery challenges within these areas.
In his address at Ke Ditselana Cultural Village, ANC Ekurhuleni Chief Whip Cllr Jongizizwe Dlabathi warned against the illegal occupation of land in the area.
“We warn and condemn those individuals who deliberately occupy illegal land with an aim to undermine government work. This administration is on the trajectory of building 100 000 houses and 59 service stands for all, across Ekurhuleni region, therefore, our people must be vigilant and guard against those who attempt to undermine the work of government,” said ANC Ekurhuleni Chief Whip Cllr Jongizizwe Dlabathi.
ANC Caucus through these public meetings is then enabled to articulate government programme, strengthen stakeholder relations through mass mobilisation, and sectoral engagement. ANC Ekurhuleni Caucus further encouraged effective, fair and just public participation by our communities on matters of service delivery.
Through ANC Caucus’ political oversight, a number of service delivery issues were registered. They included, number of streets that were not tarred, blocked sewer drainage system, poor electricity supply, human settlements, poor grass cutting in most of the open veld, and lack of street light maintenance.
“As a responsive government, we are confident that the City’s executive will attend to these service delivery challenges as they are already reported and receiving the necessary attention. Furthermore, ANC Ekurhuleni Caucus is well aware of the Integrated Development Plan (IDP) priorities that have been identified in these areas of which some are of a long term in nature because they need a massive budget allocation,” he said.
Meanwhile, in ensuring that we become a responsive Caucus, these are some of the Ward 60 service delivery achievements:
· Construction of 35 RDP Houses in Moleleki Ext. 1 and 2, total will be 135 housing units.
· Re-blocking of Riverside Informal Settlement.
· 60 More Chemical toilets were erected at Riverside and Sphamandla Informal Settlement.
· Construction of new community park in Moleleki
· Construction of Mphalane Str. Vosloorus Ext 20.

The City of Ekurhuleni’s Executive Mayor Cllr Mzwandile Masina, Cllr Dlabathi and councillors visited the still under construction R63 million, Abram Hlophe Primary School in Katlehong South.
“The commitment to serve the people of Ekurhuleni is a standing commitment,” he concluded.
