Offices relocation project gains momentum

SEKHUKHUNE – The inter-departmental team on the relocation of Sekhukhune district offices from Capricorn district to Makhuduthamaga Local Municipality once again met at Mamone Village on Monday.

The team comprising Public Works, Roads and Infrastructure MEC, Namane Masemola, Treasury MEC, Seaparo Sekoati and CoGHSTA’s Basikopo Makamu last met with the Pedi Mamone Traditional Leadership on the planned relocation of the offices at the end of August this year.

The meeting then sought to thrash out and expedite matters relating to the land required for the project, which land has since been earmarked.

On Monday, MECs Masemola, Sekoati and Makamu met with the Royal Council and Traditional Council to take forward the process on the relocation of Sekhukhune offices and township development.

The meeting unconditionally agreed to release the land for this essential project and is currently left with the last step of securing a tribal resolution which will be given soon within the agreed time-frame.

Key to the progress being made is that the royal House has previously agreed to provide the required land for government to begin with the necessary work.

More meetings will be held with the leadership of the community and other such important stakeholders on the matter.

The move is expected to see about 10 district departments and other key sector departments moving to Jane Furse.

The developmental decision would result in the R579 road, between Lebowakgomo and Jane Furse, becoming the prime economic space.

The road would be gold and thousands of local communities among them, young people, would be employed.

It is estimated that about 3000 workers would be relocating from Lebowakgomo offices to Jane Furse to serve the people of the district in their own locality.

The Public Works department said it had plans to have a public-private partnership agreement with the traditional authority on behalf of the local community and that government would eventually have to own the space of land.
