Chief Mmbangiseni Manenzhe said he is satisfied by the level of service delivery implemented by Musina Municipality in the villages under his kingdom. He was speaking at Manenzhe Tribal Council Office during the visit by Musina Mayor, Cllr Mihloti Muhlope. Manenzhe is one of the five senior traditional leaders who have been allocated seats in the Council of Musina Municipality.

Manenzhe added: “I understand that the municipality has inherited a lot of rural villages from the defunct Mutale Municipality. As a member of the municipality Council, I understand how the municipality systems operate. Despite lack of resources, we can see the progress in our areas under the new political leadership of Musina Municipality. I will continue to work hand in hand with the municipality to make sure that my subjects are getting the best government services. ”

In response, Mayor Muhlope said it is important for Musina Municipality to build a good working relationship with the traditional leaders. She says the responsibility of the municipality is to deliver services while traditional leaders have to provide land for development.

Muhlope added that her visit was also part of the fact finding mission on the service delivery implementation plan of the municipality. “Before coming to the tribal offices, we visited various projects around this area to assess progress. Time for waiting for reports while seating in the office is the thing of the past. As service delivery agents, we have to go all out and meet our communities while at the same time interacting with them. I’m happy that we have managed to visit all the senior traditional leaders who have seats in the Council of Musina Municipality. They have all shown satisfaction with the services we are rendering to their subjects. We will continue to work with our traditional leaders and various stakeholders to make sure that services are delivered to our people without any interruption.”
