EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Sisonke District has a largely rural population and has two main urban centres, namely
the towns of Kokstad and Matatiele Employment levels are low, with only approximately
10% of the population being formally employed; the majority earns less than R1600.00
a month. Agriculture is the backbone of the economy of the district and also the largest
employer of the population.
The rural settlements are dispersed and the small size of each settlement make it
difficult and costly to service the areas. A huge backlog in the provision of services such
as electricity, water, sanitation and refuse removal needs to be addressed. The RDP
service levels for these core functions are as follows: water – 52%, sanitation – 19%,
electricity – 33% and refuse removal – 18.4%.
Sisonke together with Umzinyathi have the lowest access to infrastructure amongst the
districts in the province. An overview of household access to infrastructure in the district
shows an improvement from a low level of 28% in 1996 to 41% in 2009. The main
contributor to the increase in access is electricity infrastructure and to a certain extent
water and sanitation.
All the municipalities within the district have improved their audit outcomes over time to
a financially unqualified with other matters opinion. Sisonke district municipality was the
last municipality to receive that status in 2009/10.
Sisonke District Municipality has been identified in the KwaZulu-Natal State of Local
Government Assessment as one of 19 municipalities that recorded serious challenges
in most of the focus areas including political instability, financial management
challenges and service delivery challenges.
In terms of its Municipal Turn-Around Strategy the Sisonke District Municipality
identified the functionality, management and maintenance of water and sanitation works
as among the priorities for basic service delivery.
Two of the five local municipalities in the Sisonke District have been classified as in the
category of most vulnerable by DCoG in terms of functionality, socio-economic profile
and backlog status. This profile confirms that infrastructure prioritisation in Sisonke
District should focus on better prioritisation and implementation of water and sanitation
projects, as well as the refurbishing and improved operation and maintenance of
existing infrastructure.

INTRODUCTION
1.1
Overview1
Sisonke District Municipality is situated in the southwest of KwaZulu-Natal where it
borders on the Eastern Cape. It has a largely rural population and comprises the
following municipalities: Ubuhlenezwe, Greater Kokstad, Ingwe, Kwa Sani and
Umzimkhulu. The total population is estimated at 506 301.
The district has two main urban centres, namely the towns of Kokstad and Matatiele.
These two centres are recognised as the main economic hubs of the district, given their
high concentration, the services provided and the nature of activities. These centres as
well as the towns of Ixopo, Underberg and Creighton, which are less concentrated with
fewer services and activities, are all identified as primary nodes.
Secondary nodes include Himeville, Cedarville, Bulwer and Highflats. The tertiary nodes
comprise localities such as Donnybrook, Pholela, Franklin and Pevensey. The rural
settlements are dispersed and monofunctional in nature. Their spatial arrangement and
the small size of each settlement make it difficult and costly to service the areas.
Education statistics reveal a challenging picture: 20% of people in Sisonke are illiterate,
less than 50% have completed primary education, about 30% have some secondary
education, less than 15% have passed Grade 12 and less than 10% have a tertiary
qualification. The majority of the population are school-going and reside in rural areas.
This suggests that there is a need to maintain existing and provide more schooling
facilities closer to places of residence. Learners in most rural areas have to walk long
distances to school. Furthermore, the schools are under resourced. All this has a
negative impact on the performance of learners: they do poorly in examinations and
many drop out of school.
Employment levels are low, with only approximately 10% of the population being
formally employed; the majority earns less than R1600.00 a month. A large proportion
of the land in the district is used for agriculture. Agriculture is the backbone of the
economy of the district and also the largest employer of the population.
The district municipality is faced with the challenges of providing affordable and basic
services to all its citizens as well as trying to redress past imbalances, including spatial
disintegration, and local economic disparities. A huge backlog in the provision of
services such as electricity, water, sanitation and refuse removal needs to be
addressed. The RDP service levels for these core functions are as follows: water –
52%, sanitation – 19%, electricity – 33% and refuse removal – 18.4%.
Sisonke District Municipality with its scenic beauty and rural tranquility has a great
variety of natural tourist assets and is reasonably well endowed with accommodation

facilities. Tourism facilities are mainly located in Kwa Sani Municipality, the gateway to
Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park, a world heritage site. Sisonke has great potential as a
birding destination because of the endemic rare and endangered bird species. The
winter snow in Kwa Sani provides an opportunity for ice-skating. The rivers are ideal for
paddling and the mountainous landscapes provide challenging destinations for 4x4
owners. Cultural tourism based on traditional villages, production of art and craft work
and traditional dancing has a great deal of potential.

Sisonke together with Umzinyathi have the lowest access to infrastructure amongst the
districts in the province. An overview of household access to infrastructure in the district
shows an improvement from a low level of 28% in 1996 to 41% in 2009. The main
contributor to the increase in access is electricity infrastructure and to a certain extent
water and sanitation.
2.2
Sanitation
With regard to access to sanitation, the district municipality’s household access to
hygienic toilets has gone up from 28% in 1996 to 50% in 2009. The improvement in
access to sanitation in general in the Municipality is mainly due to the increase in the
use of pit latrines with ventilation which was at 37% by 2009.

2.3
Water
There are low levels of access to clean water in the district. Access to piped water
above RDP level increased from a low level of only 27% to 44% from 1996 to 2009.
Similarly, there has been an increase as well in access to piped water below RDP level.
More than 40% of the households do not have access to clean water.
2.4
Electricity
The increase in electricity connections is the biggest infrastructure achievement in the
municipality. In 1996, household access to electricity connections was at a low level of
13%. Access has, however, increased over the years reaching 35% by 2009.
2.5
Refuse removal
There has been an increase in access to formal refuse removal service from 1996 to
2009 in the Municipality. Access has gone up from 9% in 1996 to 21% in 2009.
Personal refuse removal, however, went down over the years from more than 70% in
1996 to 60% in 2009. The district is rural and the low levels of formal refuse removal
must be taken in the context of low settlement densities, where on-site disposal or
backyard burning of waste is sometimes appropriate.
2.6
Service provider
Sisonke district does not have authority and but performs the electricity reticulation
function. The district has authority and performs potable water and sanitation functions.
The district has no authority and is not performing the refuse removal, refuse dumps
and solid waste disposal function.

In 2005/6 and 2006/7 Sisonke district and its locals did not obtain clean audit outcomes.
Except for Sisonke, from 2007/8 to 2009/10 all municipalities improved to financially
unqualified audit outcomes. In Sisonke financially unqualified audit opinions were
received in 2008/9 and 2009/10.

STATE OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT ASSESSMENT
4.1
Overview of findings on assessment in the municipality
Sisonke District Municipality has been identified in the KwaZulu-Natal State of Local
Government Assessment as one of 19 municipalities that recorded serious challenges
in most of the focus areas and should therefore be prioritised for immediate intervention.
4.2
Governance
Sisonke District Municipality is one of 17 municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal affected by
political instability. The Provincial Report lists a number of causes of political instability
including: the lack of understanding and adherence to the roles and responsibilities of
political office bearers, interference in council matters from the regional and provincial
political structures, a lack of deliberations on matters in council, domination of some
councils by politically powerful administrations, power struggles between political office
bearers from same party and a lack of communication and public participation
frameworks creates environment for uncoordinated interaction with community.
4.1.2 Financial Management and Viability
Sisonke District Municipality is also one of 30 municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal that are
facing serious financial management challenges. The Provincial Report lists some of
these concerns, including: poor financial planning, inadequately skilled staff appointed,
lack of proper financial controls, poor financial competencies of elected representatives,
and unemployment and poverty had a negative effect on credit control and income.
There is also a general perception that councils are not transparent when it comes to
9
financial policies and activities and that the reason for this is to hide their corrupt
practices from the public.
4.1.3 Service Delivery
Twenty municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal, including Sisonke District Municipality, are
experiencing serious service delivery challenges. The Provincial Report is of the view
that the allocation of powers and functions between the different categories of
municipalities is impeding service delivery. This factor, coupled with the lack of
adequate funding and objective prioritisation of needs, appear to be the major factors
giving rise to service delivery challenges.
5.
INFRASTRUCTURE PRIORITIES OF THE MUNICIPAL TURN-AROUND
STRATEGY
The Sisonke District Municipality identified the functionality, management and
maintenance of water and sanitation works as among the priorities for basic service
delivery in the Sisonke Municipal Turn-Around Strategy.

halls are the dominant MIG projects. In Greater Kokstad and Umzimkhulu local
municipalities a large number of MIG projects are about roads and stormwater. To date,

VULNERABILITY CLASSIFICATION
The DCoG Municipal Spatial Classification System was designed to develop municipal
profiles according to spatial location, based upon results from indicator sets on
functionality, socio-economic profile and backlog status. Its purpose is to inform a
differentiated approach to municipalities.
The four municipal classifications developed by DCoG are:
Class 1: Most vulnerable (57 local municipalities)
Class 2: Second most vulnerable (58 local municipalities)
Class 3: Second highest performing (58 local municipalities)
Class 4: Highest performing (58 local municipalities)
The five local municipalities in the Sisonke District can be classified as follow:
