Pretoria - Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor, Zanoxolo Wayile, and several other mayors are expected to sign a Delivery Agreement with Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister, Sicelo Shiceka, on Thursday.

The delivery agreements, announced by the Minister of Performance Monitoring and Evaluation in the Presidency, Collins Chabane, ensure accountability and cooperation to achieve the targets laid down in government's mid-term Programme of Action (PoA) between now and 2014.

Thursday's agreement deals specifically with Outcome 9 of the 12 outcomes that seek to ensure a "responsive, accountable, effective and efficient" local government system.

Wayile said that the signing of the agreement would take place within the principle of cooperative governance and "working together to build a better life for all".

He added how proud he was to be part of a life-changing agreement which will hold mayors accountable for the implementation of the PoA.

The signing will take place from 10am - 2pm at Emperors Palace, Kempton Park. - BuaNews
