30 Mar 2011
The Department of Public Works led by its political head, MEC ES Mabe undertook to project visitation on 31 March 2011 and 1 April 2011. The purpose of the MEC’s visits to the Thabo Mofutsanyane District was merely to assess progress on the projects in progress while simultaneously the MEC was familiarising herself with district personnel and work done in the districts.
The Thabo Mofutsanyane District visit was the first of its kind and it was just after the MEC tabled the department’s budget vote/speech in a Parliamentary sitting in the Ngwathe Local Municipality. During her visits in the above mentioned dates, the MEC was joined by departmental officials including the Deputy Director-General, Mr B Matutle, Chief Director Works, Mr M Thebe, support staff from the MECs Office led by Mr L Mahoa, other support staff from the Communications Unit, Property Management, Security Services, Legal Services.
“Part of the objective for these visits is to make sure that I know departmental work taking place in the districts and that I interact with the personnel of the department openly,” MEC Mabe added. MEC Mabe also indicated that everyone in the employ of Public Works needed to take the commitments made in the Budget Speech seriously as the department shall be measured on the recently tabled document, (department’s budget vote speech was tabled by MEC ES Mabe on 28 March 2011 in Heilbron).
