IGR Service Delivery Day
The Executive Mayor of ZF Mgcawu District Municipality Cllr Maryna Basson today took government services to the people of Kakamas in the Kai !Garib Local Municipality. This initiative is aimed at making sure residents do not struggle or travel long distances to access government services. The services that were in serious demand were amongst others Home Affairs, the Social Development Department and the Department of Labour among others.
Residents were pleased with the services with others saying they have been unable to go collect their ID documents or do enquiries at the Labour Departments in Upington due to the distance and that the service delivery program made it easy for them to get their documents and access the services. Social grant beneficiaries said they were able to inquire and resolve the challenges they had with their old SASSA cards.
The Executive Mayor fulfilled a previous commitment to assist several less fortunate residents to apply for Identity documents. The service delivery day was attended among others by the Executive Mayor, the Mayor of the Kai! Garib Local Municipality, Councillor Marshall Matthys, the Executive Mayor of the Dawid Kruiper Local Municipality, Councillor Michael Sigede, Councillors, Directors and Heads of Departments. The Executive Mayor ended the day with food parcel donations to a grieving family as well as to less fortunate community members in the area.
