What Our Constituency Says

“Solly Msimanga is one of the best mayors in the whole country. Those who don’t know can’t really tell that we belong to two different parties. I work with the mayor in everything. He is my friend and my mayor, too. He is actually implementing everything. Our vision for the City of Tshwane is the same … Msimanga, was now delivering on his promises.” David Makhura, Gauteng Premier

Kingsley is doing a astoundingly job, and its because he provides action.

After spending the day in Mooiplaas with @Kingsley Wakelin and the Mayor (a difficult meeting about a difficult situation), allow me this observation: Everyone there, including Mashatile, were astounded by Kingsley's support and credibility in the community. He may not be from Mooiplaas, but he is FOR Mooiplaas. This is what our values are about. Hats off Kingsley.

Kingsley is doing an absolutely awesome job of trying to keep everyone happy. If you thought that our rural areas were ill-served by Eskom's pre-Neolithic infrastructure and inability to bring replacement parts from Brits timeously, ask to join his Service Issues Reporting WhatsApp Group (via the cell no. above) and see the huge volume of (water and power) issues facing the residents of the 'new', monster-sized estates in Centurion West and realise how lucky you are (and that you don't rely on your local council for the majority of the services you have)! I had to leave the group due to the sheer volume of posts, but the energy, enthusiasm and drive of our Mr Wakelin are awesome to behold! (I suggest you're probably better off signing up to the blogs via the Web site).

A compliment for Cllr Wakelin. After 10 years of me trying without success to get the rates account transferred from my dead husband's name to my name, Cllr Wakelin got the transfer done with a couple of emails. Great service to a very appreciative community member 😊 Thank you!

Great Service

( From constituency member )

A friend of mine went to Property evaluations in Pretoria today. She would like to bring to the Mayors attention the wonderful service she had there. Even to being taken back to her vehicle which had been parked blocks away. The people there need to be commended for going more than the extra mile. Many many thanks for first world service.

Service from Tshwane
