The Mayor’s Message
2019 is a year of implementation for the many projects we have embarked on, to make uMfolozi Municipality a better place for all.
Various service Delivery and infrastructure project across uMfolozi are currently being handed over to our communities by the Council and Administration. Multiple Early Childhood Development Centres have been either built from scratch or refurbished in all our wards. As a Municipality, we firmly believe that it is important to equip each child with a quality foundation phase education in order to ensure that all children uMfolozi have a chance of a better life.
The upgrade of rural roads is critical towards allowing adequate access to people in rural communities and we upgraded access roads and sidewalks within the municipality such as the over Koko Access Road in Ward 3. We have also handed over Multi-Purpose Community Centres which are a safe place for our communities to gather for meetings of leisure or community participation.
uMfolozi Municipality is one of five municipalities within the 17 wards of the King Cetshwayo District.
The N2 national road passes through the municipality, which connects it to major towns such as Richards Bay and Durban. The significance of this road to the Municipality is that it serves as the major economic corridor in the area.
The municipality has an estimated population size of 144 363 of which 51.9% are women. The average population density is estimated at 88 people per km2.
