Media StatementMessage of condolences on the passing of Mayor Matongo
 

Media Statement: 19 September 2021

Today is a sad day, as we woke up to the tragic news of the passing of the Executive Mayor of Johannesburg, Cllr Jolidee Matongo. 

As a municipality we have been silenced by the death of a leader and activist who was always committed to the vision of building a prosperous society. Over the years, Cllr Matongo served both the City of Joburg and the ANC in various capacities.

“On behalf of the Midvaal Local Municipality I would like to express our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, broader community as well as the ANC on the untimely passing of Cllr Matongo. In him we have lost a great servant of the people. We pray that the Almighty God grants the family patience and strength to deal with this huge loss,” said the Executive Mayor, Bongani Baloyi.

The Midvaal Local Municipality also wishes to join members of the Local government sector in conveying my deepest condolences to the Matongo family, friends and colleagues during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Death has once again robbed South Africa of a selfless and courageous Leader and a freedom fighter.

May the soul of this humble servant of the people rest in eternal peace.

ISSUED ON BEHALF OF THE OFFICE OF THE EXECUTIVE MAYOR

Executive Mayor of Midvaal Local Municipality, Alder Bongani Baloyi, receives his first vaccination today at Lakeside community hall.

“The process was so quickly and pleasant thanks to the staff”, said the executive Mayor, Bongani Baloyi.

The mayor would also want to encourage all qualifying residents to register to vaccinate. Team Midvaal will always be ready to assist all qualifying residents to get their vaccination.

Despite the significant progress which dropped active cases in the recent past, the municipality continues with ward-based outreach programmes and encourage all qualifying resident to register and vaccinate.

Here are the facts about COVID-19 vaccines:

  • COVID-19 vaccines are tested rigorously and are proven to be safe and effective.
  • If you are an adult with an underlying medical condition or illness, you have a greater risk of severe COVID-19 and should get the vaccine to protect you.
  • It gives protection against severe COVID-19 and COVID-19 related death.
  • It cannot give you COVID-19 as it does not contain any live virus.
  • It cannot change your DNA.

Although there is a weekly decline in active Covid-19 cases people should remain vigilant and adhere to the regulations.

Alderman Bongani Baloyi, Executive Mayor of Midvaal Local Municipality is excited and relieved to have received his first

Media Statement: NTHA Property Developers are at it again with another illegal housing development
 

Media Statement: 06 August 2021

Midvaal Local Municipality has been informed about another illegal residential development intended in Walkerville (Golf View Estate) by Ntha Property Developers.

Ntha Property Developers are currently advertising the sale of stands and houses for the envisioned Golf View Estate development from R350 000 to R418 000, and requesting buyers for a down payment of R150,000.

The Municipality has not received or approved any application for development for the Golf View Estate project. Moreover, there are no adequate municipal services to support the said development.

Community members face the risk of not securing transfer of properties after purchase since no formal processes have been followed. Communities who have bought into the similar illegal Ntha Property Developers development in Elandsfontein cannot obtain title deeds for the properties they bought. There is no supply of municipal water, electricity is connected fraudulently, no access routes and no proper sanitation. All of this, a result of an illegal development.

The Municipality wishes to inform all residents that the Golf View Estate project in Walkerville is illegal and will be taking legal action should the developer starts with construction work on the property.

Midvaal Local Municipality has a zero tolerance towards illegal housing developments that take advantage of vulnerable people in need of housing.

Over the past week, the Municipality has demolished 54 houses constructed illegally by Ntha Property Developers at Portion 116 Elandsfontein and has further removed 24 foundations and building materials from the site.

Members of the community are advised to refrain from purchasing stands or houses from Ntha Property Developers as they are taking advantage of the housing vulnerability within the Municipality.

The development is illegal, and it is the community who will suffer the consequences of this illegal development while the developer will be enjoying their hard-earned savings.

Media Statement: Demolition of illegal buildings and removal of building materials on portion 116 of the farm 334 IQ in Elandsfontein
 
Media Statement: 27 July 2021

Midvaal Local Municipality has over the past two years informed and warned members of the public about an illegal housing development taking place on Portion 116 of the Farm Elandsfontein 334 IQ by Ntha Property Developers.

The Developer of this illegal housing development (Ntha Property Developers) was requested by the Municipality to cease all construction activities and comply with the necessary Town Planning and Building Control development processes but failed to do so.

Due to the non-compliance, illegality and risks associated with this development, the Municipality followed the correct litigation processes and successfully obtained an order from the Court to demolish the illegal housing structures on site.

Today, various housing structures in this illegal housing development were demolished by the Municipality in conjunction with the Sherriff of the Court.

Midvaal Local Municipality has a zero tolerance towards illegal housing developments that take advantage of vulnerable people in need of housing.

These Developers do not want to follow due processes that ensures the safety of occupiers, availability of infrastructure and confirmation of structural suitability of the buildings for occupation by the Municipality.

Members of the public are urged to always confirm the status of any suspicious housing developments prior to purchasing with the Municipality, so that they do not fall prey to these Developers.
