DA-run uMngeni debt free less than a year into governance

20 Oct 2022 in Where We Govern

Please find attached soundbite by Francois Rodgers, MPL – DA KZN Leader.

The DA in KwaZulu-Natal is elated to announce that the first DA-run municipality in the province, uMngeni Local Municipality has managed to pay off a R10.4 million loan making it debt free.

This is 11 months into governance, saving residents R450 000 in interest this year.

When we went to the polls in 2021, the DA made promises to the voters of uMngeni that should the DA be elected to government the municipality would show the residents of uMngeni and the province of KZN the DA difference.

We would bring meaning to the words, “where the DA governs, we govern well.”

Under the governance of Mayor Chris Pappas and his team, the DA has managed to wipe off all debt created by the ANC.

The savings of almost half a million can now be spent on service delivery for the residents of uMngeni.

UMngeni is testimony that the DA gets things done.
