He applauded him for the work done by the LGSETA, the support and for encouraging such initiatives where the work of the SDFs can be recognised. He highlighted the important role the SDFs have within the municipalities and communities. “It is the SDFs that are in the cold face of communities and it’s the SDFs that need to assist with addressing the challenges with in the communities”, he stated.

The Interprovincial Forum discussions focused on the work of the SDF and ways of professionalising the SDF occupation.

The speakers at the Forum included feedback on the WSP Evaluations from Mrs Josie Singaram, SSP Manager, who also confirmed that the Eastern and Western Cape had a 100% submission.
