Where we govern

Midvaal

This is Midvaal Local Municipality’s second term of DA governance, the only returning administration voted in by an increased majority, up from 55% to 59.7%.

Because, all our people, regardless of political affiliation, want to be served inclusively by their municipality, Midvaal’s vision is: “To inclusively serve the needs of our community.”

With consistently clean audits and a very low unemployment rate, Midvaal Local Municipality will keep setting the bar higher for municipalities in Gauteng.
