The municipality is more than ready to honour those who are making contribution to the community through the Mayoral Community Awards.

Ray Nkonyeni Municipality Mayoral Community Awards, an initiative by Her Worship the Mayor, Cllr Nomusa Mqwebu to recognise and honour individuals and organisations that are touching the lives of ordinary citizens will be once more taking place on 29 June 2018. The municipality, through these awards is also aiming at encouraging the civil society to play a pivotal role in bettering the lives of the people as government cannot do that alone especially with limited resources.

Nominations which were opened from 18 May and closed on 01 June 2018 were invited from individuals and organisations which instill a culture of patriotism in our communities. The Gala Dinner where the selected nominees will be announced and awarded trophies and recognition certificates will be taking place on Friday 29 June 2018 starting at 18h30 in the Margate Hotel. Amongst those that will be awarded will be the Best Agricultural Enterprise, Successful SMME, Best Community Policing Forum from the organisations category and from the individual category, the Mayor will amongst others award the Best Sports Performer. In addition, there are those who will be awarded under Mayor’s Discretionary Awards.

The process of selecting the winners has not been an easy one as the panel had to look at the submitted motivation and scrutinize evidence collected by the municipal officials through physical visits to projects or direct interviews with the nominees. As this is an annual event, communities are encouraged to play a role in nominating those that they think and feel are making immense contribution to the betterment of the society. All Media Houses are invited to the Awards Ceremony however for the public attendance is by invitation.
