At the Enoch Sontonga Council Chamber, DA Speaker for Fezile Dabi District Municipality, Cllr Sidney Pittaway, presided over a Virtual Ordinary Council meeting to deliberate on the district’s fiscal adjustments and strategic objectives for the upcoming period.

The district’s portfolio for finance, DA Councillor and MMC Stone Makhema, highlighted the importance of the distributed budget, stating, “As a district municipality, the Fezile Dabi Municipality provides a support role to four local municipalities: Metsimaholo, Mafube, Ngwathe, and Moqhaka.”

Makhema pointed out the significance of the budget’s readjustment: “The realignment of the original budget will ensure that the municipality is better positioned to provide this support role.” During the council meeting, Executive Mayor Khasudi elaborated on some critical enhancements, including:

  • Increasing contracted services funding to R12,310,750 to incorporate the insourcing of Special Investigating Unit (SIU) services, ramping up the capacity to probe unauthorised, irregular, fruitless, and wasteful expenditure, with an aim to root out corruption and cut unnecessary costs.
  • Boosting transfers and subsidies by R2,555,000, earmarked specifically for NGOs and social assistance initiatives run by political offices.
  • Upping capital expenditure to R4,945,000 earmarked for the procurement of emergency fire-fighting gear and water testing apparatus, resources that are extended to local municipalities as a part of a supportive agenda.

“Although most of the revenue generated by the municipality is through grants received on a national and provincial level, efforts are in place to raise internal revenue through an interest in investment, operational revenue and sales and rendering of the services,” Makhema added. He proudly reported that a surplus from the previous year’s savings amounting to R2,988,250 was channelled into financing operational expenditures with an impressive R1,400,000 surplus upon the adoption of this budget revision.

Makhema proclaimed, “The approval of the 2023/2024 adjustment budget is an indication of the confidence of the DA executive in the municipality and an endorsement of the DA steering the municipality in the right direction.”
