What a successful Amajuba Stakeholders Engagement!!!
The KZN Finance Portfolio Committee took the Provincial Treasury to Amajuba District, Dannhauser Municipality, Durnacol Sports Complex on Friday 6 December 2019. The Provincial Treasury presented the Draft Annual Performance Plan and Budget for 2020/21 Financial Year. The main aim was to expose the public to have a glimpse of the APP and Budget long before these two are passed by the Legislature. Their views and comments are factored in as the two are in a draft form.
This public involvement proves that the KZN Legislature is a truly “activist Legislature” which is a centre for public involvement and oversight. Our people are involved many months before the APP and Budget are passed by their Legislature.
The public members were exposed on how the KZN Provincial Treasury is structured and what are its main functions. Treasury Programmes and Sub programmes were clearly explained. These were presented by the Deputy Director General Mrs Shezi, Chief Financial Officer Mr Ndlovu and other three senior officials.
The Chairperson Hon “KK” Nkosi welcomes the members of the community to the Stakeholder Engagement Session.
The public was afforded the opportunity to engage on these presentations. The questions and comments were of a high quality thus all Hon Members of the Finance Portfolio Committee commended the public. They were indeed involved in their Legislature which passes Laws.
The Chairperson of the Committee Hon Sipho “KK” Nkosi said, “we salute the people of Amajuba for posing relevant yet difficult questions during this, and concluded by thanking the Speaker of Dannhauser and all Councillors who had taken their time to attend this important meeting.
