Tshwane mayor Solly Msimanga has reflected on the year that is coming to an end and urged residents to be safe during this period of festivities.
“During this year in office, I had the opportunity to visit the different communities in the city and I was reminded that there is still so much we need to do to uplift the standards of the living of the majority of people in our city,” said Msimanga.
“I have been touched by the way in which communities are coming together to help each other.”
Msimanga said this served as evidence that the city had come closer towards achieving a liveable, resilient and inclusive status.
“Just over one year since taking office, this DA-led multi-party administration continues to work hard to rebuild Tshwane.”
Msimanga commended members of the mayoral committee, top management and all other metro employees for their hard work and dedication.
“I know that it is not always easy, and I hope that you take this Christmas break to rest so that when you return in 2018, you are energised and refreshed so we can together continue on this journey of making Tshwane great again.
“To our VIPs, the residents of Tshwane, I would like to thank you for your patience with us during this year of transition, for understanding that the change you want to see, will take time. I ask that in 2018 you continue to work with us so that together we can build this beautiful city that we all call home.
“To all those who will be travelling during the festive season, I would like to remind you that road safety is the responsibility of all of us and by exercising this responsibility we help to eliminate injury and death on our roads.
“I want to wish you all a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year,” he said.
“Let us take this festive time to help us appreciate the love in our lives that we often take for granted. May the true meaning of the holiday season fill your heart and home with many blessings.”
