A further R8 million has been allocated for Boskuil feasibility study in the Dr Kenneth Kaunda district municipality”, announced MEC Maine.

He added that the department will support municipality to spend their MIG grants as we sadly note that capacity challenges in planning, contribute significantly to the failure by some of our municipalities to spend on their MIG allocations.

“Job creation will be at the centre of each project initiated and undertaken. 13 500 job opportunities will be created in 13 municipalities, through the Community Works Programme and further job opportunities will be created through Local Economic Development projects and job creation initiatives in 23 municipalities which the department will facilitate and provide support on”, remarked Maine.
