SOUTH AFRICAN GOVT TO MEET COMMUNITIES DURING UPCOMING IMBIZO WEEK
Members of the South African government will fan out across the country next week to visit communities during National Imbizo Focus Week from Nov 7 to 11.
The theme this time is "Together we move South Africa forward: Our future - make it work", a government statament said here Thursday.
All South Africans are encouraged to actively participate in the Imbizo Week events and engage with political principals.
Izimbizo are a uniquely South African channel of face-to-face communication between publicly elected representatives and the citizens and is derived from the Zulu word meaning a gathering or assembly which serves as a forum to discuss policy.
The platform is an opportunity for Cabinet Ministers and their deputies to visit communities and give feedback on progress made in the implementation of government programmes, particularly the Nine-Point Plan, which is aimed at igniting economic growth and job creation.
