Despite being rural, Nongoma Local Municipality, with its share of challenges, continues to provide excellent service to residents and local business community. We consider public participation paramount as it ensures that residents are part of policy making and monitoring. We are guided by the philosophy of Ukuzakha Nokuzenzela (self reliance).
