Take a leaf out of Steve Tshwete council's book
A LOT can be learnt from the mayor of Steve Tshwete municipality, Mpumalanga councillor Mike Masina after his council was declared one of SA's best run municipalities for the third year running.
This shows real commitment from its councillors who really want their people to get access to services.
I was really impressed with the interview he did on radio last Friday when he expressed his wish to see the people who voted for the councillors get out of poverty, with adequate shelter, in the form of houses. He also said they were fighting corruption in their municipality. If the other municipalities were doing what Steve Tshwete municipality is doing, we would have gone far in developing our country.
Let's hope mayors and councillors from other municipalities learn from M ayor Masina. Enough is enough with empty promises . Voters in this country deserve better .
