“We need to give decent services to the community so the people employed in this office need to be decent.”
“THE RENOSTERBERG people always support the ANC and that is the reason why we have decided to open an office in this area.”
These were the words of Northern Cape Premier, Dr Zamani Saul during the opening of the Parliamentary Constituency Office in Petrusville on Monday, June 14, 2021.
Saul said the aim of the office is to assist residents from Pertusville and neighbouring towns such as Vanderkloof and surrounding towns with various community services.
“If you have a child that needs a bursary, someone who needs a pension or even when there is a funeral and the family requires funding for the funeral, this office will be able to assist. Even those who have business plans and want to launch their businesses can approach the office for information on how they can go about that,” said Saul.
He said employees for the office had already been appointed.
He urged those who were appointed to give the necessary services and support to the community.
“People who are not able to listen and assist the community, will not be appointed in this office. This office belongs to the community and those appointed should assist with the challenges the community face. This office is for the poor and employees at the office will have to listen and solve the problems in the community. We need to give decent services to the community so the people employed in this office need to be decent,” he said.
He said although the office is an ANC office, it will not show community members who belong to opposition parties away.
“We will not show the door to community members from other political parties. We will also give them the same services as they also form part of the community,” he said.
Saul handed 1 000 blankets and 500 food parcels to the community.
