Mandeni Municipality: Pothole Week (Back to Basics Programme)
Mandeni Municipality mayor honourable Cllr SB Zulu has launched Pothole Week, which will take place from the 25th till the 29th of May 2015 in support of the Back to Basics Campaign aimed at serving communities better.
Mandeni Municipality has fully adopted the Back to Basics programme as part of its on-going effort to provide better basic services which directly impact the community on a daily basis. Seven wards within the Mandeni Municipality will benefit directly during Pothole Week, in patching potholes and electricity maintenance as electricity street lighting will form part of the week's programme. The wards to benefit from this programme are ward 3, 4, 7, 12, 13, 14 and 15 which are monthly serviced.
Mandeni Municipality which prides itself in delivering the core basic human rights services enshrined in our Constitution and Bill of Rights; which are electricity, housing, waste removal and roads; has engaged with local emerging contractors to partner with the Municipality to ensure a significant local impact of this programme. Three local emerging contractors have been appointed to assist the Mandeni Municipality in implementing the patching activities in the various wards.
The Municipality is currently planning future projects for ward 15 which will include Phase 3 in the rehabilitation of Mandeni Internal Roads; Phase 3 which is currently on advert closing on 12 June 2015 for the appropriate awarding of the tender process, will cover Bhidla Road.
