SALGA Women Commission calls for the strengthening of all women structures in local government


Posted: 14 August 2018

Women leaders in local government are attending a three-day SALGA Women’s Commission (SWC) National Summit from the 13-15 August at the East London International Convention Centre in the Eastern Cape Province.

The summit, under the theme “Working together to promote gender equality, sustainable development and good governance’’ coincides with the national women’s month theme ‘’Celebrating 100 Years of Albertina Sisulu, Woman of Fortitude: Women United in Moving South Africa Forward”.

About 300 female political leaders in local government consisting of municipal delegates, chairpersons of the Multi-Party Women Caucus, Councillors, Mayors, Speakers, Chief Whips and Municipal Managers are in attendance.

Presenting an overview on Women Structures at Local Government at the start of the SWC National Summit, National Chairperson of the SALGA Women Commission Councillor Sindiswa Gomba called for the strengthening of all women structures in local government.

Councillor Gomba says the focus of the SWC is on promoting women empowerment and interest in local government.

Gomba urged women leaders to unite and support each other irrespective of their political affiliations.

During the next days, the SWC will deliberate on the implementation of the Gender Policy Framework for Local Government in municipalities.
