Where we govern

City of Tshwane

After outlawing blue light brigades for all public representatives, putting a stop to luxury vehicles, and banning unnecessary international travel, DA-led Tshwane has invested in a pro-poor budget. Already, over 6 000 residents are receiving their title deeds, giving residents ownership of a home that can be passed on to their children. Their new Anti-Drug Unit is taking drugs off our streets, with the help of community-led organisations offering support and drug education. And the mayoral mansion is for sale – instead of improving the lives of politicians, the Metro plans to use the money to bring better services to those who need them most.

This is the City of Tshwane’s vision for the term:

Quality Basic Services

To provide better and better basic services and infrastructure.

Economic Growth

To facilitate higher and shared economic growth and development.

Sustainable Communities

To fight poverty and build clean, healthy, safe and sustainable communities.

People First

To foster participatory democracy and Batho Pele principles through a caring, accessible and accountable service.

Governance & Transformation

To ensure good governance, financial viability and optimal institutional transformation with the capacity to execute its mandate.
