Communications Minister to engage Tshino community

Communications Minister Faith Muthambi will on Monday engage with the community in Tshino village, Vuwani in Limpopo, as part of the activities of the Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) on Vuwani.

The IMC, headed by Minister for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Des van Rooyen, was established by President Jacob Zuma after an unprecedented outbreak of violence that saw the torching of 24 schools, as well as other acts of intimidation and violence.

The violence followed the ruling by the Limpopo High Court to affirm the decision of the Municipal Demarcation Board, to amalgamate Vuwani with parts of the Malamulele municipality.

The communication information session seeks to address the flow of information about matters affecting the community in and around Tshino village and to further promote social cohesion and nation building.

Minister Muthambi will be joined by her colleagues in the IMC, the Nesangani Working Committee, the Executive Mayor of the Vhembe District Municipality and Mayor of Makhado Municipality.

“In this information session the community will be afforded an opportunity to engage directly with the leaders, including the Moral Regeneration Movement and religious leaders, as well as other stakeholders.

“Community members will be afforded an opportunity to ask questions and share ideas,” said Minister Muthambi. –
