Home > Amakhosi

​​​​​​Ugu District Municipality acknowledges the critical role of Amakhosi’s knowledge and relationship with communities which are integral to the efficient implementation of service delivery.

This stance is in line with the provision of Section 154(2) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa 1996; parallel to this legislative arrangement is Section 81 of the Municipal Structures Act, which allows the MEC for CoGTA to identify Amakhosi to serve in Municipal Councils.

In light of the above, Ugu District Municipality has seven Amakhosi in their Council which were identified by the MEC for Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA), Ms Nomusa Dube to form part of decision making for the development of the Ugu District.

In 2013, the Speaker of Ugu District Municipality, Cllr Sthembiso Cele made sure that a workshop was held to ensure that all the Amakhosi gazetted to serve in various Municipal Councils within the Ugu District were introduced to the Code of Conduct and the Standing Rules and Orders of Council.

Amakhosi plays a pivotal role and works in partnership with the elected Councillors to facilitate the implementation of community development in their respective localities.

In 2015, the Ugu District Municipal Council approved that Amakhosi should attend the meetings of the Portfolio Committees as follows, which has been implemented accordingly.
