Webinar | Local Government in Crisis: How can it be Fixed

19th November 2020 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Even before the coronavirus struck, South African municipalities were withering on the vine. How can affected residents accept government’s shocking service delivery (or none) from refuse collection, roads maintenance, street lights, water, sanitation and electricity to recreational facilities, parks and beaches? What are the implications of continued dysfunctional municipalities as we head into the local government elections next year? What is the role of the citizens and how will your active participation help fix the troubled municipalities?

Join Democracy Development Program (DDP) in partnership with key civil society stakeholders at this 3-part half-day webinar sessions to engage on the following issues:

  • Implications of the Auditor-General’s report on the functioning of municipalities, accountability and transparency in public institutions.
  • Implications of your vote for 2021’s local elections for the survival of municipalities and their fiscal responsibilities.
  • Critical participation from civil society, particularly NGOs – your role and responsibilities.
    Revived role of the municipalities in order to get out of debt spiral, recover revenue lost to corruption and maladministration.
  • Challenges, opportunities and reform – the future of municipalities is now.
