Annual Report 2015-2016
During the 2015/2016 financial year, the country’s GDP remained
under pressure with growth prospects of 1.7% for the
year against a 2.5% projection that was made at the beginning
of the year and in the Budget Statement of the Minister
for Finance. This is a cause for concern as the opportunity to
create much wanted jobs is directly threatened.
Sol Plaatje Municipality has felt the pinch, as the collection
rate for the year is below the actual for the prior year, and the
accrued revenue for services was marginally below the projections,
especially electricity sales. It is for this reason that as
we are concluding the 2012/2013 to 2016/2017 IDP, we take
stock of what was planned and achieved, and use this as the
basis to project capabilities for the next fi ve years, starting in
the financial year 2017/2018.
