RANDBURG

The City of Johannesburg intends to invest over R620 million in Randburg.

Johannesburg Mayor Mpho Phalatse made the announcement during an address on the second leg of the Golden Connection Mayoral Tour on Tuesday at the Walter Sisulu Sports Hall in Randburg (Region B).

The tour began last week in Lenasia (Region G), when Phalatse announced that the City would invest more than R2 billion in more than 50 capital projects in the fiscal years 2022-2023 and 2023-2024.

According to Phalatse, the large investment in Region G is due to a “historical lack of investment in this area, which has contributed to it being the region with the highest unemployment rate in the city, at 42.1%.”

She stated that only the inner city and its environs (Region F) would receive a larger share of capital spending. The second leg of the seven-region tour to “repair and rebuild Joburg” began on Tuesday.

Mohau Ntheli, the City’s acting director of development planning and social security, is Region B’s regional director.

Phalatse stated that the City had co-opted regional directors onto the mayoral committee, which was an important decision-making body.

According to her, the City recognises the value of having regions at the decision-making table because they are familiar with the communities they serve.

“We have also gone out to the market to source alternative energy sources directly from independent power producers so that Joburg does not rely on Eskom to keep the lights on.”

“Over the fiscal years 2022-’23 and 2024-’25, City Power will be and has begun with capital projects worth over R36 million in this region,” she said.
