The municipality held its strategy and planning session on the 26th and 27th February at Tsitsikamma in order to review the organisations vision, mission, short and long term objectives and strategic direction. The objectives of the strategy and planning session are to provide a broad reflection of the municipality’s conceptualisation of the back to basics as an integral instrument of a developmental local government, to appraise the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs on the organisational performance of Koukamma Municipality in discharging its local governance mandate. It was further aimed at highlighting strategic and prudent areas of required support to enhance the organisational performance record of the Municipality and finally to allow a platform as a theatre of engagement to solicit collective understanding and approach in implementing and accounting on the back to basics in order to strengthen social contract between Koukamma and its local communities and other role players.
