This is fulfilling the commitments the Executive Mayor made, that the municipality must improve the way it responds to calls of service delivery challenges.

“This is part our strategy to rebuild this municipality by ensuring that service delivery is improving, and this will assist us in responding better to service delivery challenges across all wards,” said Executive Mayor Thabethe.

The fleet consists of seven bakkies that the municipality purchased, fire fighting vehicle that was donated by the provincial government last week as well as the tipper truck that was donated by the Department of Forestry, Fisheries, and the Environment.

“These vehicles are meant for nothing else, but service delivery and I appeal to all employees who will be using them that these are tools of trade, take a good care of them. I also urge residents to be jealous about their assets and report any form of abuse to the municipality,” he concluded.
