In the spirit of Madiba and his vision to spread social justice and freedom for all, the department has deemed necessary to join hands in the Provincial plan to host the Mandela Day in Joe Gqabi District Municipality at the Myemane Traditional Council in Sterkspruit.
“As Nelson Mandela was of Royal Blood the department felt it proper to spend the Mandela Day by dedicating its efforts to improving the stature of our Traditional Council. This is also in line with the department’s commitment to restore the dignity of traditional leaders and to provide them with necessary resources so that they perform their duties effectively and thereby contribute to the betterment of their communities,” said MEC for EC Cogta, Xolile Nqatha.
On the day the senior officials of the department led by the Head of department, Ms Gabisile Gumbi Masilela will be painting the hall and conducting minor repairs. The event will take place at Myemane Traditional Council in Sterkspruit, commencing at 10h00.
