    On the 27th June 2015, the Setsoto Local Municipality partnered with the Provincial Department of Sports, Arts, Culture and Recreation and other stakeholders by hosting the finals of Motlalepula Ntsala Football Tournament. This fifth annual tournament is a remembrance of Motlalepula Ntsala a leaner who passed on during a football match.

    After the Mayor Tseliso Jakobo tabled his budget vote speech in the last council sitting, the Mayor announced that in this financial year 2015/2016 the indigent thresh hold has increased to R2860.00.

    Setsoto Local Municipality supports and ensures that citizens are able to access their constitutional right to have access to a basic level of services such as your 6kl of water and 50kw of electricity monthly.

    To ensure implementation of these free basic services to the community, the municipality embarked on public participation meetings which its aim was to inform and to urge the community to register in order to obtain the services. The meetings took place around all four towns of Setsoto (Ficksburg, Clocolan, Marquard and Senekal).
    The municipality is targeting child headed households, pensioners and everyone who is earning below the thresh hold of R2860.00 per month.

    For a household to qualify as indigent, a household must meet the following requirements:
    • The applicant must be a resident of the municipality and South African citizen.
    • The applicant must be eighteen (18) years of age and above.
    • The verified total monthly household gross income of all occupants or dependents in a single household must not exceed the amount of R2860.00 as approved in the budget for the applicable year. The total household shall exclude the child care grant, foster child grant and other income which is meant for the child below the age of 18.
    • The applicant must be the owner or tenant who receives municipal account, excluding households in informal settlements and rural areas where no accounts are rendered.
    • Registered indigent consumers who own more than one property within the municipal area, will only qualify for subsidy for one site.
    • All households that are child headed, even if they are below eighteen (18) years of age can apply for the indigent support provided they have the necessary documents (i.e. death certificate of owner, latest municipal account and birth certificates).
    • The registered indigent must be either the owner or occupant (tenant) of the property concerned.
    • All households applying for Free Basic Electricity must have electricity connected to the household.
    • Subsidies apply to households and not individuals.
    • The onus for applying for indigent subsidy rest with the consumer who cannot afford to pay the full municipal tariff for services received.

    The community can therefore acquire more information about the campaign from their nearest municipal offices, Ward Councillors and Ward Committee Members.

    On the 30th of June 2015, the Setsoto Local Municipality was blessed by the presence of the Auditor General Mr. Kimi Makwetu who was accompanied by the HOD for COGTAHS Mr. Mokete Duma during Audit Committee Meeting.

    Setsoto Local Municipality is one of the 9 Municipalities in the Free State that was issued with an unqualified audit opinion with findings for the 2012/2013 financial year. In the past the municipality received disclaimer and qualified audit opinion respectively.

    The unqualified audit opinion with matter of emphasis means the financial statement is fair and in conformance with the generally recognised accounting principles. However, there is a non-compliance with legislation requirement.

    The qualified audit opinion means financial statement is essentially in conformance GRAP except for one or few areas where the auditor cannot or does not want to, assert conformance.

    “We would have not received this unqualified audit opinion if it was not of the support and commitment we received from offices of the AG, Office of the Honourable MEC for Finance Me Elsabe Rockman and the Office of the Honourable MEC for COGTAHS Me Olly Mlamleli” said the Mayor Mr. Tsheliso Jakobo.

    The Auditor General said their sole purpose for visiting municiplities that received unqualified opinions with findings is to give these municipality support in working towards attaining clean audit which is highly possible based on the potential demonstrated by these municipalities.

    “We are very proud of the state that we are in right now and our biggest challenge is to ensure that we work together towards attaining clean audit in the next audit report. Our Management led by the Municipal Manager Mr. Tshepiso Ramakarane has also did us proud” added the Mayor.

    The Mayor of Setsoto and the community of Setsoto Local Municipality strongly discourage all forms of violence against foreign nationals.
    South Africa’s transition to democracy was one of the world’s most iconic testimonies of tolerance and peaceful co-existence. Under the stewardship of Nelson Mandela the country had an unwavering dedication to democracy, selflessness, reconciliation, service to humanity and a better life for all.

    The recent attacks on foreign nationals are a threat to our historical achievements as a nation. Moreover, the attacks go against the democratic values enshrined in the Constitution.
    Government encourages communities to continue to work with government to ensure that there is a lasting peace. Be part of the solution by saying no to violence and reporting those who are bent on using violence to destabilise our society to the police.

    The Traffic Officers and Water Services Officials will monitor adherence to these restrictive measures.

    A fine of R500.00 will be imposed upon anyone found abusing water resources in line with restrictions. Failure to pay the fine will result in criminal charges being brought against the person in terms of the Water Restrictions Bylaw.
    Exceeding the household limit of 25kl per household will result in tariff increase as follows: increase of 30% between 25-35kl and increase of 50% above 35kl.
    Businesses, hotels, boarding house government buildings, schools and recreation clubs will get a 30% penalty in levy.
    All businesses, hotels, boarding houses, government buildings, schools and recreation clubs that cannot achieve this should apply to Director Technical Services for consideration of an exemption based on valid reasons.
