Mandeni Local Municipality’s Technical Services Department (IDProgSC) held a fruitful Infrastructural Development Steering Committee Meeting on Friday, 02 November 2018 at Prince’s Grant Golf Estate. The focal point of the meeting was to get feedback from various infrastructural stakeholders servicing the people of Mandeni. Eskom, ILEMBE District Municipality and the Department of Transport were among the stakeholders who formed part of the proceedings.


A host of issues regarding infrastructural developments within our Municipality were discussed and anecdotes were tabled. Speaking at the meeting, Mandeni Local Municipality Mayor, Sphesihle Zulu cited that such a gathering helps to enhance service delivery.

“A gathering of this nature is very important as it will help us to really be a reliable people centred and a sustainable economic hub by 2030. Infrastructure plays a huge role in improving the livelihood of our people” said Zulu.

The stakeholders at this meeting also got an opportunity to present on the projects which have been implemented within this Municipality, projects including road infrastructure, electrification projects as well as housing projects. A host of other projects on the pipeline were outlined and discussed.



“We will need to take everything that has been discussed here back to our communities and help to uplift our people. We also need all the stakeholders to work keep us abreast with any future developments that they would like to implement in our communities. This gives us a clear picture of what is to be implemented so that we can be in a better position to explain what is happening to the people” concluded Zulu.
