The specific functions of a councillor are not comprehensively dealt with in legislation, although Section 53 of the Municipal Systems Act, 2000, does direct that each municipality must ‘define the specific role and area of responsibility of each political structure and political office bearer of the municipality and of the municipal manager’ and within that define how the councillors and municipal managers and other staff members should interact.
Our accredited skills programme will equip the delegate with knowledge and skills to contribute positively to their municipality and community. Community leaders can only be successful if they understand the communities and the people they have to service. You can only be effective if you go to the people you want to serve, learn from them, understand their conditions and work for change at a pace that they can accept.
