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.
