SALGA leadership to engage Eastern Cape Municipalities, holds media briefing
The South African Local Government Association (SALGA) National Executive Committee (NEC) will dedicate the better part of this week in the Eastern Cape where it plans to engage with local municipalities on challenges currently being faced by local government.
The two-day meeting will see the SALGA leadership interact with municipalities in the province, and attend to urgent and pressing matters confronting them. The planned engagements are as a result of the NEC's decision to intensify regular interaction between SALGA and its member municipalities in a bid to resolve various pressing local government concerns.
SALGA has introduced a rotating system of convening scheduled NEC meetings throughout the nine provinces with meetings already held in the Free State and Limpopo.
The President of SALGA, Cllr Thembi Nkadimeng, invites members of the media to a media briefing in Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality, East London.
