Pretoria 10 May 2011 - Acting Minister for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA), Nathi Mthethwa will be at the Flagstaff Sport Grounds tomorrow to deliver the keynote address at the launch of the Clean Cities and Towns campaign.

“The campaign is an extension of our drive to instil the principles of clean governance in our municipalities in line with the objectives of Outcome 9 in terms of achieving a local governance system that is accountable, responsive, effective and efficient. We are excited by the collaboration behind this launch as it brings together both the elected representatives and traditional leadership in the area driving the same agenda,” Minister Mthethwa said.

Details of the launch are the following:

Date: Wednesday 11 May 2011
