 UThukela District Municipality Mayor, Cllr DCP Mazibuko recently led uThukela delegates to Swaziland. 2013 was Swaziland’s first inception on uThukela Mayoral Cup but already the sister relationship is clearly noticed. Although Mayoral Cup was the gist of the said trip, several initiatives that may have a mutual beneficiary effect between uThukela and Swaziland were amongst the talks. Tourism being on top of the list.

We will recall that the EAST3ROUTE initiative was collectively conceived by the KwaZulu Natal Province, Mozambique and Swaziland some few years back, with a view to, in particular, promoting eco-tourism development capitalizing on the region’s exciting topographical landmarks and emphasizing the existing blend of cultural and historical heritage.

“This trip was by far, one of the means of walking on the Minister’s, Honourable Mabuyakhulu’s footsteps in igniting the light of this initiative.  Judging by the warmth and undivided attention given to us by the Swaziland Mayor, His Lordship, Mayor Jones, more other positive outcomes are yet to prevail between uThukela and Swaziland. We are also working hand in hand with the Mayors from our neighbouring Municipalities as we have a vision of linking Mayoral Cup with other huge events, Dundee July being the example.” Were the Mayor’s words.

Signingof the MOUThe agreement, which is the first of its kind among KwaZulu-Natal municipalities, was signed at the Platrand Lodge in Ladysmith.

Under this agreement, the municipalities commit to sharing knowledge, skills and best practices in areas of water and sanitation, local economic development, finance management, tourism, good governance as well as community participation.
Mayor Nxumalo said the signing of the MOU will encourage co-operation between the two municipalities in order to bolster service delivery which will allow them to deliver on their political commitments to the people of KwaZulu-Natal in their respective areas of jurisdiction.

“I am particularly pleased with the fact that our Water and Sanitation Unit has already started working with UThukela District Municipality on possible areas where we can share best practice in terms of water provision and preservation. We are optimistic about this agreement because we already have a completed water project that we have done at the City of Bulawayo in Zimbabwe where we also have a Sister City relationship. I am confident that we will start reaping the fruits of this agreement before the end of our term in 2016,” he said.
