OGOGO BATHOLA MALINI

Very informative, syabonga

Yhooo R10 increase for child grant!🙆🏿‍♀️ For real? Long walk to R500 grant per child! We are grateful though that girls from disadvantaged communities will now get monthly free sanitary towels! Hopefully no one will loot this money as that will constitute #GBV stru.

However its mostly black peoples vehicles being damaged. Sorry I had to mention race , did not mean to offend anybody. But a white mans complaints seem to be ignored.at all cost.

Lana kukwaN esection 7 mawuya ngase Apolo 7 kwagujwa umgwaco wasala unje besicela usizo ziyilimala iyimoto zethu

Thank you Can we also kindly be updated on our district's pass rate...

Sicela ukwazi ngama bursary.siwathola kanjani

Well deserved applause to Amajuba District for taking 2nd place best performing district in the province

Mr Mayor can we please have a cup of tea

What interventions have you put in place to help the class of 2020 in terms of registrations at Varsity? Are there any bursaries that you have put in place to help the Newcastle community? I heard that if one does not have money for registration they can apply for in their municipality how true is that? And what are the requirements?

Mr Mayor. When can we meet.?????? In person .????

Definitely Mr Mayor. 2020 was beyond challenging for adults let alone matriculants! Infact all learners deserve a #whoooooo_sheeeeeem for persevering & pushing on through these horrendous conditions! A special mention to those who excelled with disctinctions... May they continue to shine like the diamonds that they are... & to those who didn't make it their efforts have not gone to waste. 2020 was a difficult year so they must just pull up their socks & try harder this time rectifying what they did wrong last year... we support them 100%

Admin 👍👍👍 good job. Update kusen kubonisa ukuth uyasebenza.

I still wish to meet this man, I have been making appointments but there was no replies. I want to meet him because no one will understand the importance of Environmental health practitioners well.

Street lights have been out of order in some areas for at least abt 5 months. Each time you call theres always an excuse that there's a back log. Not sure as to why we even pay rates. Highly disgusted with the service from the electricty department... Our homes are easy targets to thief's due to streets being in darkness. 😡😡😡

Hi

Last night our beloved church is loss every things what is in side of the church and destroyed everything just here at scout street

Can we plz have visible policing in those shetlers in the passage behind Bosco to Abdul butchers it's where they smoke drugs using needles

Municipality only puts this now.. They slow... As it's been on FB a while ago already ☝️☝️

Residents should get up and investigate why there dogs or there neighbours dogs are barking instead of ignoring the matter. Its due to the factor residents ignore barking dogs is the reason criminals are taking advantage of the situation.

Thank you...
