Today, Theewaterskloof Municipality is excited to announce a significant investment of a quarter of a million rand towards awarding internal bursaries to dedicated staff members. This year, the internal bursaries were awarded to employees in key departments such as finance, traffic, housing and ICT, recognizing the importance of nurturing talent within these crucial areas.

By providing opportunities for further education and professional development, the municipality will empower employees to excel in their roles and contribute to the overall improvement of service delivery.

While addressing the successful candidates during a certificate handover, Municipal Manager Wilfred Solomons-Johannes emphasized that the municipality is committed to fostering a culture of continuous learning and development within the organization, and that these bursaries represent a tangible step towards that goal.

“Today we want to congratulate all of you on receiving these bursaries, and we wish you all well with your studies. We see this as our way of enriching our human currency and developing our timber. We want you to use this bursary and study, but then come and apply what you have learned when you have completed your studies.”

“You were chosen as recipients because what you are studying can play a critical role in creating stronger departments and having more knowledge in key departments within this organisation. A paper means nothing if you don’t utilise what you have learned, and we hope that all of you will be able to apply what you have learned at the end of your studies. We wish you all the best and thank you for wanting to advance your career and this organisation. We look forward to seeing the positive impact of this investment on both our employees and the community we serve.”

Through these bursaries, Theewaterskloof not only invests in the growth of our staff but also in the enhancement of customer satisfaction. Strengthening these crucial departments will enable the municipality to better meet the needs of our communities and ensure efficient and effective service.

Councillor Monwabisi Raymond Nongxaza, chairperson of the Community Services Portfolio, also expressed his congratulations and well wishes to the candidates.

“When there is an opportunity, it is important to want to better your education and career. I’m happy to see so many of you have taken this opportunity given by the municipality, especially the women. I ask that the Lord be with all of you and I wish you all success with your careers.”
