Eastern Cape Premier Mr. Phumulo Masualle, Members of the Executive Council (MECs) Executive Mayor and Mayors will on Friday, 17 March 2017 officially open 17 War-Rooms in Lady Frere; Emalahleni Local Municipality; Chris Hani District, as part of Operation Masiphathisane roll out. The launch of War Rooms on the day will precede a community engagement which will be held at Mtirara Senior Secondary School in Matyantya Administrative Area, Lady Frere.

The event on Friday will follow launches of 10 War Rooms by MECs and Mayors in each of the other five local municipalities in Chris Hani District, i.e. Enoch Mgijima; Ngcobo; Sakhisizwe; Nxuba Yethemba and Intsika Yethu Local Municipalities; tomorrow, Thursday 16 March 2017. With all these launches, Chris Hani District Municipality will then boast with 67 War-Rooms.

This is part of the broader roll out of Operation Masiphathisane’s War-Rooms across the Province. War-Rooms are Ward based and all-inclusive structures with all relevant stakeholders to deal with all social ills and wage war against poverty, unemployment, corruption and underdevelopment in general. They endeavour to bring together communities, and government departments from all spheres of governance to plan, monitor and evaluate service delivery programmes at a Municipality Ward level. This initiative was officially launched in May of 2016.  It is a fulfillment of the pronouncements made by Premier Masualle to establish these structures during his 2016 Budget and Policy Speech.
