Mahikeng-In an effort to ensure that there is seamless coordination of agricultural and rural development related services between the department and local government, MEC Desbo Mohono will on Monday, 16 May 2022 launch a Muni-MEC forum. This decision to launch Muni-MEC comes after a series of engagements between municipalities and the department held throughout the entire province recently. During this engagements, a need to foster practical intergovernmental relations in order to plan, budget and implement jointly in order to provide a coherent government for the people was identified. Other than ensuring that there is synergy between the Department and municipalities in the province, the forum will also be used to implement the District Development Model, (DDM).
Under the District Development Model all three spheres of government coordinate and integrate development plans and budgets and mobilise the capacity and resources of government and civil society, including business, labour and community, in pursuit of inclusive growth and job creation.
It is expected that on the day of the launch, the work and expectations for this forum will be outlined to government service recipients. Members of the media are therefore invited to cover the launch of this forum which scheduled to take place as follows:
