Closing the 2022/2023 financial year

Looking back at the 2022/2023 financial year, the year that will be set behind
the horizon on the 30th of June 2023, I can boldly state that I am well pleased with the way in which Ubuhlebezwe Municipality has implemented its IDP and Budget for the financial year, in spite of the challenges that face the local government sphere universally.

In South Africa, the right to food, among other basic rights, is enshrined in the Constitution. The same Constitution also affords Government the mandate to make provisions, either legislatively or otherwise, to ensure that this right is realised which is why Ubuhlebezwe Municipality sought out to encompass the support for Hiv/Aids Support groups by introducing QedaIndlala food security campaign, on the 9th of December the Municipality then embarked on journey of all the wards to officially handover the mini food security tunnels to the support groups.
This project will not only eradicate poverty but also have economic development implications as the support groups can consume or sell the produce that they harvest.
