Midvaal municipality sticks to their promise

The Midvaal Local Municipality in Gauteng kept its promise to the residents by officially opening the newly rehabilitated roads across the Midvaal area.

This after the Municipal Member of the Mayoral Committee for Engineering Services, Peter Teixeira, officially opened more than 12 roads, which were reconstructed and resurfaced as part of a commitment by the DA-led municipality to dominate Gauteng in terms of service delivery.

The Midvaal Local Municipality in the Sedibeng District is rated number one in terms of clean governance, service delivery and job creation for the local economy.

Teixeira told OFM News that all these road projects were implemented during the 2018/19 financial year.

More women needed in construction and water sectors

Women who are currently in business or considering the entrepreneurship route are encouraged to pursue opportunities in the construction and water sectors. This is according to the Free State Department of Water and Sanitation’s Mogee Kumang, who says that various opportunities for women to break into these two mentioned sectors exist, however, not enough women know how to enter these industries as not enough information exists on this. Speaking to OFM News, Kumang said that for this purpose, the Department will host a workshop in Bloemfontein on Monday, 19 August, where the department will elaborate on the opportunities that exist in these sectors, the supply chain processes to follow for success as well as other topics relevant to those seeking to break into these industries, which are normally male-dominated. This event as well as several others that follow thereafter form part of the Department’s Women’s Month itinerary, which seeks to promote awareness on the water sector and the various business and career opportunities women can pursue in this industry.
