One of the decisions taken by the current council after being sworn in to office in 2011 was to take youth seriously and recognize their existence within the boundaries of this municipality.
Part of that decision was to officially switch-on the festive lights as part of entertaining youth and giving them space to laugh, share, and network.
Last year’s occasion was bigger and even better than ever before.
This, the council declared it to be an annual event and they intend to make it even more special in the years to come.
Intsika Yethu in partnership with Sakhisizwe and Engcobo Municipalities coordinated by Chris Hani District Municipality (CHDM) continue with the production of trees through Vulisizwe Nursery.
The Vulisizwe Nursery project recently received a financial boost of about R 250 000 from National Development Agency (NDA).
This comes after some time of operating under a number of challenges which the project has now overcome.
