Honourable Premier R.M. Mtshweni

On Thursday, 11 April, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Provincial Goverment and Sasol. This would not be the first Memorandum of Understanding signed between the two parties, but the first signed by two women: Honourable Premier R.M. Mtshweni and miss Charlotte Mokoena, Executive Vice president, Human Resources and Corporate Affairs at Sasol.
The evening was well attended by members of council, Sasol vice presidents and other dignitaries and everyone was dressed for success.
Honourable Premier R.M. Mtshweni said the following after she had welcomed and greeted everyone: “SASOL undertook the responsibility of assisting the Provincial Government to effect socio-economic transformation, not only to reverse the legacy of inequality, but also to put Secunda and the Province of Mpumalanga on a developmental trajectory that will meet the needs of all our people.”
“This progressive approach has resulted in SASOL putting aside funds to invest in basic, social and economic infrastructure within Govan Mbeki Local Municipality. The achievements of the initial 5-year MOU period include among many others;
• The upgrade of a Pump Station,
• The establishment of a sewer reticulation network,
• Waste water reticulation in eMbalenhle,
• Upgrade of the Secunda electrical substation,
• Upgrade of the Bethal electrical substation,
• The construction of 33 Houses for the elderly, vulnerable and orphaned; and
• Clinic upgrade in Ext 14 eMbalenhle.
• Capacitating municipalities on financial management to assist them to improve on their audit outcomes. As indicated earlier, these are but a few highlights.”
“Programme Director, the desire to improve the lives of our people is the cornerstone of the covenant entered into by the ANC led government and the people of Mpumalanga and more specifically the people within the ambits of Secunda and its surrounds every 5 years.
As we renew our covenant with SASOL today, we are in the same vein preparing to renew our covenant with our people next month, which will see a democratically elected government coming to power and continuing where the current administration would have left off.”
After the Premier spoke, everyone was thanked and a small question and answer session was held for the media. The Premier and miss Mokoena sat and answered the questions from the journalists. The Bulletin asked how these projects were maintained that GMM and Sasol work on together, but no clear answer was given before the time for questions was over.
