Municipalities are faced with a very challenging task of ensuring that they implement the developmental mandate that they have been tasked with. To implement the objectives of the local government as they are clearly spelt out in the <White Paper on Local Government>, requires a very strong organisation with dynamic and charismatic leadership that is able to provide a clear direction for the success of the organisation as well as to help the organisation to achieve what it exists for.

This also requires a vision and mission that will serve to steer the KwaDukuza Municipality in the desired direction with positive outputs. To realize this vision council council has to palce much effort in fast-tracking and fine-tuning KwaDukuza’s operational strategies and programmes. This will be done through the Integrated Development Plan (IDP) which is one of the key tools for local government to cope with its developmental role and assist munipalities to arrive at decisions on issues such as the municipal budget, land management, promotion of <local economic development> and institutional and organisational transformation in a systematic, strategic and consultative manner.
