Where we govern


Theewaterskloof Local Municipality’s new pro-poor budget will continue to bring better services to poor communities, with a colossal R72.6 million going towards building more houses. The Municipality’s vision is to ensure and preserve the heritage and natural resources within the region, whilst creating and developing a safe, healthy, crime-free, economically stable, and viable environment for all. This DA-led municipality has a zero tolerance approach to corruption – receiving clean audits for honest spending and good management for four years running.

Theewaterskloof's Success Stories

Since 2006, we have worked to drastically upgrade Grabouw’s infrastructure to process sewerage, produce drinking water and store more water. This job-creating investment will last a long time.

"Our Mayor not only gave us a party with integrity but she also united us in a family which cares for each other. She makes it her task to see that every poor person and family has access to services.” – Jacobus and Varety Oncke
