The Dawid Kruiper Municipality recently closed the year 2017 on a high note with its annual Carols by Candlelight event.
We will recall that the municipalities of Mier and //KharaHaiswere merged recently. It is now known as the DawidKruiperMunicipality. This merger has led to the hosting of two Carols by Candlelight events due to the vastness of the new municipal area.
The first Carols by Candlelight event was held in Rietfontein which is about 250 kilo meters outside of Upington. This was a first for the community of the former Mier area. The excitement and the jubilation could be visibly seen on the faces of the residents.
The Mayor’s Christmas and New year’s message was rendered and the Christmas lights of Rietfontein were switched on.
The main carols by candlelight event was held at the MxolisiDicky Jacobs stadium in Upington. The stadium was named after one of the fallen liberation fighters of Upington.
The stadium was jam packed by people from all walks of life. People from as far as Namibia were present as well as people who are resident in other parts of South Africa. The Carols by Candlelight event serves as the official opening of the festive season.
The council of the Dawid Kruiper municipality recently went out on a council meets the people program. This month long program included visits to all 16 wards in its municipal jurisdiction.
A full compliment of the council is introduced to the community during the council meets the people program.
The council meets the people program is divided into 3 sessions per ward. It involves a day long visit in each ward of the municipality. During this visit a door to door session is held. The aim of the door to door is to determine how the residents of the ward are viewing service delivery. The Executive Mayor, the Speaker and all the councilors are divided into different groups that are participating in the door to door session.
A sector meeting is held subsequent to the door to door session. The youth, businesses, women, sports bodies, the farmers and the religious bodies are invited to the sector meeting. This session enables the council to hear face to face what the problems of the different sectors are. This sessions is also characterized by suggestions that are made by the different sectors.
We are busy cleaning our municipal area and removing the refuse which is dumped by our residents.
We are calling on all of the residents keep our areas clean and not to dump refuse anywhere. The municipality is committed to keeping our areas clean with the co-operation of the residents.
Your co-operation will be highly valued
It is time for our matriculants to sit for their final year exam. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of the matriculants well in the exams. They should not doubt themselves or be pessimistic about the exam. I believe that all the matriculants are fully prepared for their final paper. Former President Mandela once said, ‘It seems impossible until its done.’
It is possible to do well in the exam. Mr Mandela also once said that, ‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.’ Lets do well and change the world.
Good luck in the exams!!!!!
