Restoration Of Dignity Through Service Delivery

As the first point of contact between citizens and the government, local government is at the coalface of delivering a better life for the citizens of South Africa. It’s a sphere of government where policies meet the real-life aspirations of the people, where theory meets reality. By Phakama Mbonambi.

International Cooperation Is Key

The South African Local Government Association (SALGA) regularly forms partnerships with other entities on a regional, continental and global scale, in order to share innovations and experiences as widely as possible, writes Rodney Weidemann.
