City service delivery in Nomzamo and Lwandle on track <p>​Yesterday I visited the Strand where I held a community meeting with residents of Nomzamo and Lwandle.<br><br>The City of Cape Town has been making progress in both communities to enhance service delivery.<br><br>In Nomzamo and Lwandle, the City is electrifying nine informal settlements – a process which we started two months ago.<br><br>City officials, working with a contractor, are currently in the process of finalising the electrification of 2 148 structures in Siyanyanzele, a section of Pholile and Simanyene. <br><br>We are working to complete this work by the end of July 2018.<br><br>Altogether, the City will be electrifying nine informal settlements in Nomzamo. Work on the six other areas will start in the 2018/19 financial year which commences in July.   <br><br>This will take the total number of connections to 4 255 when the project is concluded. The full project is due for completion at the end of the year.<br><br>Together with this project, we also want to give back to the communities and provide lasting skills which they can use to further improve their lives.<br><br>In this regard, the City has signed a memorandum of understanding with the community last week. The agreement will offer 52 residents training in the Installation of Electricity project in Nomzamo under the EPWP programme.<br><br>This training will consist of pole climbing, installation of cables, airdac, ready boards and the installation of pole boxes.<br><br>In Lwandle we are upgrading the hostels which were built in the 1960s to accommodate about 500 male migrant workers.<br><br>The project, which was completed in February, has seen the old roofs being replaced with new zinc roof sheeting at a cost just over R1 million.<br><br>This project also created a number of job opportunities for the local community. <br><br>The City has plans to further do renovations such as staircase upgrades which will commence at the start of the 2018/19 financial year.<br><br>These projects in ward 85 and 86 underscore the City’s commitment to enhancing service delivery as intended by the Organisational Development and Transformation Plan.<br><br>The significant progress made so far is as a result of great collaboration between the various players including the community leaders and I would like to thank those involved in making it <br><br>As a caring administration, we are committed to working with residents to ensuring that these projects are a success and improve the lives of the intended beneficiaries.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2018-05-20T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891d;GP0|#904f8ac3-ad18-4896-a9a8-86feb1d4a1b7;L0|#0904f8ac3-ad18-4896-a9a8-86feb1d4a1b7|StatementsGP0|#26bb9055-f99b-47d4-9a26-8f248b80784c;L0|#026bb9055-f99b-47d4-9a26-8f248b80784c|Lwandle;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#54023efe-5443-41f4-98c9-065296a7c3d7;L0|#054023efe-5443-41f4-98c9-065296a7c3d7|service delivery;GP0|#faa0c4e4-56bf-42dd-a18a-1347a64deb91;L0|#0faa0c4e4-56bf-42dd-a18a-1347a64deb91|electrification1
