RNM and its Municipal Manager are amongst the five municipalities and municipal managers respectively nominated for 2017/2018 Premier’s Excellence Awards within KwaZulu-Natal Province.

The RNM and its Municipal Manager, Mr Max Mbili have been nominated for Best Run Municipality of the Year and Best Municipal Manager respectively for the year 2017/2018. Both the municipality and the municipal manager did not have to enter for this category of the Premier’s Excellence Awards but were shortlisted by an independent panel of assessors and moderators based on the performance of the municipality during the 2016/2017 financial year.

The assessment and moderation process were based on the performance of all municipalities within KwaZulu-Natal and information was sourced from the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs. The criteria used by the panel was based on the Back to Basics Programme, Audit outcomes by Auditor-General and the Service Delivery and Budget Implementation Plan (SDBIP). Adjudication amongst the five shortlisted municipalities is done by judges who visited the municipality conducted interviews and sought practical and documented evidence on the aspects mentioned above.

The Awards Ceremony for the Premier’s Excellence Awards will be held on 12 July 2018 at Durban ICC starting at 18h00 and both municipality and the Municipal Manager are confident that they presented enough evidence to win this prestigious award.
