Deputy Minister Mcebisi Skwatsha to visit Waterberg District Farmers and the Bela-Bela CPA in Limpopo

Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development, Mr Mcebisi Skwatsha, will on Thursday, 21 November 2019, visit the Mahlohomolo Project and Bela-Bela Communal Property Association (CPA) in Bonwaphala within Waterberg District Municipality, in Bela-Bela, Limpopo and hand over implements to farmers.

The visit forms part of the build-up activities towards the Waterberg Presidential District Development Program-#Khawuleza.

In June 2019, during the State of the Nation Address, President Cyril Ramaphosa stated that the Council's agenda would be refocused to sharpen and strengthen cooperative governance and implement a well-coordinated and coherent national programme of action, in a form of the Khawuleza District Coordination Service Delivery Model. The model seeks to secure maximum coordination and cooperation among the national, provincial and local spheres of government, who will act in partnership with civil society, including communities, business and labour, at district level countrywide.
The Khawuleza District Coordination Model was initially launched at Ingquza Local Municipality and followed by Ethekwini Metropolitan Municipality and will now proceed to Waterberg District Municipality.
The deputy minister will host a stakeholder engagement session with farmers from the district and the beneficiaries of Bela-Bela CPA beneficiaries on service delivery issues. In line with the planting season, the farmers will also receive farming implements.
