Message from MM Max Mbili to RNM public who cannot be assisted because responsible employee is on leave



Members of the public are advised not to  accept a response that they cannot be assisted because an employee responsible for the function  is on leave. Management has been advised to make necessary arrangements before application for annual  leave is approved.  If this response is given in future, members of the public are advised to contact the Head of Department who will give the necessary response.  Members of the Public are also advised to engage Heads of Departments before they take their problem either to  the office of the Municipal Manager or Madam Mayor.

It is the view of the Municipality that function or business responsibilities don’t go on leave. We promise members of the public that all responses will be given at times as necessary arrangements will be made before annual leave is approved. In the case of sick leave Heads of Departments will ensure that an interim arrangement is made for the continuity of the business.

Heads of departments  contacts are as follows:

1.       Treasury Nolubabalo Gqola 039 312 8301 [email protected]
2.       Corporate services Nelisiwe Thabatha 039 688 2070 [email protected]
3.       Strategic Planning and Governance Siyabonga Zama 039 688 2275 [email protected]
4.       Community Services Mthandeni Ndwalane 039 315 9204 [email protected]
5.       Public Safety Sibusiso Nzimande 039 688 2251 [email protected]
6.       Development Planning services Khetha Zulu 039 315 9258 [email protected]
7.       Technical services Sabatha dlamini 039 688 2137 [email protected]

NB: While these details are given members of the public are also advised to lodge their complaints through our  central customer care and complaints management system of the Municipality. The details above should be used when there is no response beyond the promise turnaround time in terms of our Service Delivery charter.

Your cooperation will be highly appreciated

Yours in service delivery

SM Mbili

  1. Thanks Max, its great to have these channels, but if no one gets back to you, then it helps nothing. I asked for for feedback as to why our property has not been serviced by the Vacuum Sucker for the past 2 months and I have still had no reply. I called last week and I was promised that someone would return my call.
    If there is no accountability, then all your talk is just a “wishful dream” as our President calls it!!!!
    Our roads are in the worst condition they have ever been, some potholes are more than 6 months old!
    Water supply is the worst its been. Our area has been on water shedding for the past 3 weeks with no notification from anyone. We have had less than 60 days of water supply this year and we are already into July.
    The South Coast is not in a happy place……I think its time that the sweet talk is turned into action and we get off our bums and start DOING what we have been “overpaid” to do.
