On 21 & 22 August, Nkonkobe Councillors and Management embarked on a Council Outreach programme aimed at, among others, beautifying the area of Fort Beaufort. The programme included scraping and painting of a bridge and over a 50-metre wall to be decorated with murals.
This initiative precedes a bigger outreach programme aimed at unveiling developmental projects which will be rolled out over 50 days, for the next 50 weeks. The programme is scheduled to start on 05 September at 10h00, Kwa-Khulile village in Middledrift.
On the 5th of September the municipality will be unveiling a fencing and beautification of the grave of the late Prophetess Nontetha Nkwenkwe; also on this day a community hall will be handed over to the residence of the Ward in which the Prophetess lived.
In line with the provisions of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, Nkonkobe Municipality has implemented various developmental projects in collaboration with the broader community of its jurisdiction. The implemented projects include constructed and renovated community halls, surfaced internal streets, a state of the art multi-purpose centre, newly built council chambers and others. Projects totalling over R50-million will be unveiled.
In the same breath during the event members of the community will be given an opportunity to engage with Council on service delivery issues.
