Cele makes inroads
18 January 2005
The MEC for Transport, Community Safety and Liaison, Mr Bheki Cele, will officially open an access road at Mbulelweni near Donnybrook at Sisonke District Municipality tomorrow (19/01/2005). The ceremony will commence at 10:00 am at Kevelaer Mission.
This R793 000 project has been touted as a beacon of hope for this tiny village since it will provide access to two primary schools in the area. The project has also provided 100 employment opportunities to people who could not put food on the table for their families.
Of the 100 people employed, 61 were women and 39 males. Currently, the department is planning to incorporate the project under the Zibambele road maintenance programme, which will also create more employment opportunities for women.
It is also envisaged that the project will also bring about other much needed services in the area such as electricity and telecommunication facilities. This community has always been bypassed by such services due to lack of proper roads infrastructure.
ARRIVE ALIVE STATISTICS

On Thursday (20/01/2004) at 7:30 am MEC Cele and the Head of Department, Dr Kwazi Mbanjwa, will be hosting a media breakfast briefing at Hilton Hotel where he will be providing a provincial perspective of the statistics.
