This is the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality’s first term under DA coalition government. The government set the tone for the new administration by banning unnecessary special privileges that public representatives from the last government used to enjoy on the public’s dime. This includes outlawing blue light brigades for all public representatives, putting a stop to luxury vehicles, and banning unnecessary international travel.
This is the metro’s vision:
To provide better and better basic services and infrastructure.
To facilitate higher and shared economic growth and development.
To fight poverty and build clean, healthy, safe and sustainable communities.
To foster participatory democracy and Batho Pele principles through a caring, accessible and accountable service.
To ensure good governance, financial viability and optimal institutional transformation with the capacity to execute its mandate.
