The Mandate given to us by society is to improve the quality of their lives. Hence accordingly, this reviewed Integrated Development Plan (IDP) carries the aspirations of the masses of Kagisano-Molopo Local Municipality.
This IDP must therefore, be seen as a beacon of hope that will continue to guide us over the 2019/20 financial year in our collective endeavors of building a better life for all our communities and move Kagisano-Molopo to a desirable institution.
The annual cycle of the IDP review presents the Municipality with an opportunity to intensify and reemphasize its efforts in the provision of quality and affordable basic services, providing a safe and clean environment, improving the living conditions of all citizens, and creating a favourable environment for local economic development.
It is our outmost wish as Kagisano-Molopo Local Municipality to annually provide/deliver on our plans, however the financial resource remains a challenge. Having said that with the little budget or allocation we receive we remain committed to the realization of the 5 National Key Performance Areas of municipalities, being:
• Good Governance and Public Participation
• Municipal Transformation and Organizational Development
• Basic Infrastructure and Service Delivery
• Local Economic Development
• Municipal Financial Viability and Management.
As we anticipate economic growth in our municipality, we need a swift implementation of the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management (SPLUMA), mindful of the fact that 90% of the land in Kagisano-Molopo is under the control of the tribal authority. Therefore, our continuous engagement and good working relations will pave way to provision of basic service services most importantly provision of houses, and other key developmental services that seeks to alleviate poverty in our society.
I trust that this IDP will serve to stimulate and synergize our partnership with other spheres of Government, the residents of Kagisano-Molopo Local Municipality and lastly the business sector.
It is in the above context that, we as a municipality will continue giving our residents quality services
