The Deputy Minister of Public Service and Administration, Dr Chabane Pilane-Majake, will hold an Imbizo with the residents of Rolle and the surrounding villages in Bushbuckridge-Mpumalanga, on Friday 8 th July 2018, at the Worshipers Church in Ward 36. The event is scheduled to begin at 10:00 am.

According to a media statement issued by Government Communication and Information System (GCIS), the Imbizo will afford the Deputy Minister an opportunity to respond to challenges faced by the communities on a day-to-day basis, through capacitating government institutions with the required skills and information to improve the level of service delivery quality.

“ On Friday June 8, 2018, Deputy Minister Pilane-Majake is scheduled to visit the community as part of taking government to the people through a service delivery Imbizo to be held under the theme; Fast tracking service delivery in our communities. The outreach programme, to be hosted jointly with the Mayor of the local municipality, Cllr Sylvia Nxumalo, is part of the Department of Public Service and Administration’s Batho Pele – putting people first programme aimed at providing an unmediated and interactive information-sharing platform with local communities on issues of service delivery and governance. The two leaders are also expected to visit government service delivery points in the local municipality, to observe if indeed government services are rendered in line with the notion of putting people first,”

“The visit will provide an opportunity to liaise with officials in frontline services points, to ascertain the challenges they are experiencing and obstacles that hinder their maximum delivery services. Imbizo is a dialogue between government and people aimed at instilling confidence and robust participatory democracy where members of national, provincial and local government interact with communities across the country through door-to-door household visits, project visits and direct community engagements. On the day of the Imbizo, members of the community will have the opportunity to receive services and engage with officials from service delivery departments,”
