Fellow citizens, residents of and visitors to this small but beautiful world in which we find ourselves, the Bitou municipal district, allow me on behalf of Bitou Municipality to convey a message to you all, young and old.
Almost twelve months has gone-by during which we were presented with numerous and fascinating challenges around us, some of these posed positive spin offs to ourselves, while others created negative scenarios, but we have all learnt a lot from each of these situations.
You will agree with me that, as a coalition government, we Bitou folk have many unique challenges that we have to deal with, but I count on the expertise of our competent municipal staff whose commitment is to ensure good governance, improved accountability, and better work ethics. We will continuously strive to provide good customer care and service, particularly to the indigent.
I further wish to guarantee everybody of the safety and security in our parks, along the beaches, at our recreational facilities in light of the improved deployment of security officials in all areas of need. Bitou is the place to be, it is home to the homeless while offering a desirable investment destination to investors from all over SA and the world.
My best wishes for good health go firstly to the town’s most deserving citizens of the town, the elderly, and also to our many single parents knowing the type of responsibilities they have daily. I extend great appreciation to our faith community for their prayers ‘’ Vox populi, vox Dei – the voice of the people is the voice of God.
We all looking forward to exciting Christmas and festive celebrations, enjoy it and remember to go easy on the drinks. To those who will be driving home after the holidays, I commit you to the hand of God.
