Eldorado Thusong Service Centre reaches out
As gesticulation of Batho Pele principle and integration of government services, GCIS in conjunction with Home Affairs, Labour, Health, Coghsta and Blouberg Municipality reached-out to the community of Tolwe farming village on May 04. The programme was responding to the community’s demands for government services. The event was graced by the local councillor Mr Mashalane who thanked all the participants as well as service providers for their support and contribution.
Tolwe Village is situated about 200 kilometres North West of Polokwane and is a farming area where most of the residents lives in shacks and RDP houses and are mostly farm workers. Eldorado Thusong Service Centre Manager Ms Phalafala said that the event was the beginning of many things to come. “We intend taking the presidential inauguration big screen event to the village so that they are familiarised with government’s programmes”.
The outreach was also aiming at rallying the community together for the 25 May presidential inauguration occasion. Services such UIF claims, labour queries, health related matters as well as government publications and leaflets were offered. The event was in two faces, door to door and face to face interaction at a local community hall. The community were also reminded to collect their IDs at Home Affairs and to participate in the upcoming National and provincial elections.
