Notice Board

R59 Update:

We are all frustrated and inconvenienced by the protest actions in Sicelo.

The municipality has obtained a restraining court interdict to keep the R59 open and safe. It does not have any authority in respect of housing or the policing function. The R59 is a provincial road and the municipality can only enforce traffic rules.

The Public Order Police Service (POPS) has been deployed to enforce the court order.

The R59 highway was closed around midnight on 21 September 2017 as a precautionary safety measure after rocks had been hurled through the window of a passing truck. Trees were felled and barricaded the road. No perpetrators could be found in the dark.

When it was considered safe and the highway was cleared of tree stumps and other debris, it was opened again.

The POPS which has the authority to enforce the mentioned court order, is currently on the scene.

As always, Midvaal acts in the best interest of our entire community.

Proudly Midvaal Greetings.


Midvaal Vacancies

Job seekers are alerted to questionable and fraudulent job advertisements placed on social media.

The perpetrators of this criminal conduct, manipulate job advertisements and provide their own contact details to prospective job applicants.

When contacted by such applicants, they demand money to process the applications. Since desperate job seekers believe that the advertisements are authentic, they are deceived and defrauded.

The municipality will under NO circumstances charge prospective applicants a fee when they apply for work. If you are requested to pay and money for this, you are being deceived by a criminal. Please report such conduct on our Anti-Fraud and Corruption Hotline 086 0268 624.

Consult the municipal website www.midvaal.gov.za or notice boards for authentic vacancy advertisements. Call the HR office on (016) 360 7409 for verification if required.

 

Sicelo Protest Update 07 September 2017

The municipality wishes to convey its deepest condolences to the Sicelo family who have lost their child due to the ongoing protest action.

We condemn the current protest action as it is violent and criminal causing more harm and now the loss of an innocent life. Protesters have no right to damage property, intimidate other community members, engage in criminal activities and prevent other members from accessing municipal or government services. The South African Police Services and Public Order Policing are urged to act against these act of criminality with utmost urgency.

During our budget meetings, the municipality together with the community unanimously agreed to improve infrastructure in the Sicelo informal settlement area which has been budgeted for accordingly to be implemented this financial year. The municipality has been stopped from continuing with its infrastructure plans which are going to benefit the community by the self-elected community leaders. It has also come to light that foreign nationals are now at the forefront of the protest causing mayhem and violence in the area. These self-elected community leaders cannot claim to represent the community if their actions result in loss of innocent lives, intimidation and crime.

We wish to call on our Sicelo community to stand united against the so called community leaders who have not been legally appointed and are not representing the needs of the community but are advancing their own selfish reasons which will not yield any positive benefit to our community.

 

Sicelo Protest Update 06 September 2017

The municipality wishes to communicate progress pertaining to the Sicelo Residents protest action.

The Executive Mayor met with Meyerton SAPS and Public Order Police to get an update on the closure of the R59 and the implementation of the court order obtained by Midvaal local Municipality. The court order prevented community members from closing the R59 and illegally occupying land. At the meeting, discussions were focussed around SAPS and Public Order Police undertaking their obligation of implementing the court order and preventing further closure of R59.

SAPS and POPS are on the ground monitoring the situation and trying to bring stability and open the R59. Numerous arrests have been made and more are expected.

The R59 will remain closed and will only be open if it is safe to do in order to protect our communities.

We urge all road users to check our social media networks for regular updates and use alternative routes until it is safe to travel on the R59.

 

Protest Update

Dear Residents of Midvaal

The R59 is closed once again due to to rioters protesting. They are unhappy about MEC Paul Mashatile not giving feedback on his promises to provide land to the community.
Midvaal is doing everything within our power to contain the situation and we are working on a solution. Unfortunately we are by law not allowed to interfere with the work of the SAPD and the Public Order Police (POPS) who are on the scene.
We appreciate your support.
Please be safe.

MEDIA RELEASE: SAMWU DEMANDS 24/8/2017

SAMWU is currently embarking on strike action in respect of a matter that is not a strikeable issue.

The SAMWU demands relate to salaries and wages which are determined at the national level of the SA Local Government Bargaining Council (SALGBC). The SALGBC comprises of three parties, namely SALGA which represents the employers, and SAMWU and IMATU which represent the employees.

Furthermore, at a feedback meeting in Benoni on 7 August 2017, the SALGBC informed parties to the SALGBC that it has categorised municipalities in terms of their size and has also determined the salary scales for each category of municipality. The only outstanding issue is the implementation thereof. The Midvaal Municipality will have no discretion and will be obliged to implement these determinations by the SALGBC.

In addition, the SALGBC informed municipalities that are remunerating staff outside of these determinations (so-called rogue municipalities), that they will have to implement corrective measures to comply.

The Midvaal staff have been informed of these developments and directives.

The on-going protest action has resulted in service delivery interruptions and vandalising of municipal infrastructure.

We apologise to our communities for the inconvenience and frustration they are confronted with during this protest time.

MEDIA RELEASE 2017/08/10

SAMWU has embarked on a protected strike against Midvaal Local Municipality, starting today 10 August 2017 for an undetermined duration. While there are claims that the strike is due to poor working conditions and maladministration, the primary reason behind the commencement of the strike was the request to have the entire municipality regraded to a higher category municipality.

Management of Midvaal Local Municipality has communicated the processes of regrading to all staff members. In terms of the Main Collective Agreement, the matter of salaries and wages is decided upon by the South African Local Government Bargaining Council [SALGBC] at national level. The categorisation of municipalities and relevant pay scales have already been approved by the SALGBC, of which the roll out and implementation must still be finalised.

Given these developments at national level, it is clear that the dispute being pursued by the local/regional SAMWU against this municipality is being addressed by the SALGBC.

Midvaal Local Municipality does not support neither sexual harassment nor racism, hence serious action was and will be taken against any employee found guilty thereof.

It is unfortunate that mere allegations are now becoming the loose threads used to unweave a tapestry of proven transparent governance of a leading municipality. Midvaal Local Municipality has confidence that this matter will be handled with the respect it deserves, thereby ensuring accountability to all its stakeholders.
