We have gathered here today during the youth month. Youth activities are taking
place throughout the country to commemorate their fight against apartheid laws
imposed at schools by the former government.

Youth celebrate this month under the theme, Youth access to skills for the creation of
decent jobs.

During the opening of the parliament, President Mbeki said that majority of our youth
are unemployed. He further indicated that the remedy for this challenge is that the
Extended Public Works Programme had to be seriously considered.

Our government talks about bettering the lives of our people. This event depicts one
of the priorities we set ourselves in the IDP document which is electricity.

When the Council adopted the 2007/08 IDP and Budget we explicitly outlined our
Service Delivery mandate for the 2007/08 financial year.

For us to be here today becomes important as we endeavor to execute and advance
the millennium Development goals that we set ourselves as government.

One of the targets of the millennium development goals is that by 2012 every
household must have access to electricity and free basic services.

On the 17th of November 2006, we were in this ward at Kgatlu village for the purpose
of switching on of the electricity project. Today we are here for the same purpose.

When we adopted the IDP and Budget 2007 / 08 at Ga- Kobe village on the 31st May
this year, we prioritized Norma A and B and Harriswitch to be electrified in this ward.

As the Municipality we are aware that some of the villages like Kgokonyane,
Lewaneng and Earlydawn have not yet switched on. We are working round the clock
to ensure that we address challenges for those projects.

As we are still proceeding to switch on at Nkoana’s family, I appeal to all of you to
take care of this property because it belongs to all of us.

Thanks,
