Office of the Councillors

“I am confident that as we forge ahead, we all get to realise the importance of good corporate governance and the dire need for continuous learning to ensure that we keep improving.  I am more than confident that the experiences of the past have made this Municipality the great Local Authority it has become over the year under review.” – Council Chairperson

Annual Report for the Financial Year 2017/18

It is an honour for me to present to you the Ezulwini Municipality Annual Report for the 2017/18 financial year.  In this document we have put together information that seeks to give an insight to all our stakeholders about the performance of the Municipality in the past financial year.  The core information provided in this annual report specifically addresses our core mandate; service delivery, infrastructure development as well as being the development enabler at the local level.

In this report, the figures illustrate that even in the year under review, the Ezulwini Municipality
continued to grow.  As in the previous year, the Municipality also complied with the Urban Government Act and the Local Government Regulations. The Integrated Development Plan (2014-2019) had identified the following strategic objections which still remained as the strategic themes for the 2017/18 financial year.  These strategic themes were:

  • Re-branding and communication
  • Partnership with the key service providers/stakeholders
  • Strength capacity of the Municipality
  • Infrastructure development and improvement
  • Environment Management
  • Financial viability
  • Disaster Management
  • Infrastructure Development
  • Sustained Service Delivery
  • Mayor's Conclusion

The Municipality, in its development enabling function, witnessed massive development in Ezulwini in the 2017/18 Financial Year. The multi-million International Convention Centre and Five Star Hotel (ICC FISH) project took shape and progressed,  the Swaziland Revenue Authority (ERA) Head Quarters was also commissioned and the Examinations Council of Eswatini also developed a multi-million extension to the Council’s Offices. 

These infrastructure developments came as an addition to the other residential and commercial developments that took place in the town. With the EWSC sewer reticulation project, the Municipality of Ezulwini continues to offer its residents affordable and sustainable service delivery.  The Municipality is also working hard to deliver on the back log of road infrastructure developments that were carried over from the 2016/17 Financial Year due to the suspension of all road infrastructure development projects

Whilst the town was growing at a fast pace, the Municipality worked hard to ensure that quality service delivery was continuously improved over time.  The Municipality maintained its pole position of being a leading local authority in the delivery of quality services through continuous consultation with the residents and stakeholders. Attempts were also made to use the technology platforms to engage with the community so as to respond to their needs.  

This sought to ensure that resources were invested where it mattered most for the residents and assisted the municipality to achieve quick-wins Corporate governance. A lot of lessons were learnt pertaining to corporate governance.  The year under-review had three Boards holding forte at different intervals.  I would like to thank the Board members who vacated Office at the end of May 2017.  

I wish to take this opportunity to thank the Ezulwini Community, utility service providers, the business community and central government for the continued support.  My sincere appreciation goes to my fellow councillors, the Management and all the staff of Ezulwini Municipality for their effort and hard work that has made the Municipality one of the best Municipalities in the kingdom of Eswatini.
