Vote of thanks by Chief Whip during Buffalo City visit to ELM, 7 October 2011

Chief Whip Cllr DE TshabalalaAs the ANC led Emfuleni Local Municipality we wish to express our gratitude for you to travel from this far to come and learn good practices from us a Category B municipality and yet you are a Metro. This unto us signals motion of confidence and it really says we are souring with the eagles on the sky.

We intend building on this solid surface the inter-municipal relation and hoping to cement also political relations with you as Buffalo City Metro Municipality. We wish to accede to your most progressive local economic Development Strategy as we saw you’re Industrial Development Zones the last time we visited your municipality a month ago.

We meet at a time when as an organization we are mourning the loss of the revolutionaries in the struggle here in Sedibeng as the ANC, we speak of comrade Mpho Tsotetsi, Bobby Moshodi and just on Sunday we were awaken by the passing away of cde Carlos. These are activists of the movement who just happen to pass on concurrently within a period of Three weeks and two of this comrades died in car separate car accidents which is sad but it raises an ire as these comrades played a pivotal role in their own right but it equally says we have to revive the Arrive Alive in all the streets of Sedibeng.
