Friday 7 April 2017: Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality open for business

The civil mood at the moment is tense as the country faces an economic crisis of unprecedented proportions.

As a result of some ill-advised decisions by national government, there have been a number of justifiable calls to action by some civic organisations and institutions.

Tomorrow, Friday 7 April 2017, will see thousands of South Africans take to the streets in protest.

I support the democratic right to peaceful protest and encourage those who do so to ensure that this is done within the rule of law.

I want to assure the people of Nelson Mandela Bay that the work of the Municipality will continue – we are open for business.

We will continue to provide services through all our structures. While we, as citizens, have a duty to hold our national government to account, it is crucial that all other spheres of government remain fully functional.

Local government is the engine room of basic service delivery, and I am responsible for ensuring that this engine continues running.

Any municipal staff member who wishes to protest should do so during their lunch hour, or should take leave, in whatever form, through the appropriate channels, if they wish to protest beyond their lunch hour.

South Africans, never be afraid to make your voice heard. Go forth and be seen.
