Budget Speech 2017/18

.29/03/2017

Life is a continuum. Every time a challenge or an opportunity presents itself, it is time for new beginning. This is exactly my feeling at this point in time.

Let me start this speech off by quoting former President Thabo Mbeki, “The poor prey on one another because their lives offer no hope and communicate the tragic message to these human beings that they have no possibility to attain a decent standard of living”. The above statement reflects the challenges our people face on a daily basis and we need to use today’s platform to create new hope for all residents of the city.
We owe this commitment to the late Solomon Thekiso Plaatje after whom the Municipality is named who is a world renowned writer and academic. He was an epitome of excellence and service to his people and these are the values we need to carry with us as we enter into this new era.
