Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Thabo Manyoni will deliver the city’s budget vote speech for 2015/16 financial year on Thursday.
Manyoni will table his speech for approval at a special council meeting that will take place at Bloemfontein’s City Hall. He will reflect on various developments carried out by the city which includes improving Mangaung’s financial position. Municipal speaker Mxolisi Siyonzana told Bloemfontein Courant that it was better to discuss details of the municipal budge after Manyoni has delivered his speech.
“Before the council meeting takes place, the matter is still confidential. The budget still needs to be approved, firstly it needs to be tabled by council and then they will consider it. I can’t even disclose that the overall amount that is set aside for the budget before it is approved. Once I speak, council will put a vote of no confidence in me,” he said.
