South Africa’s minister to meet Eastern Cape community development workers

MuthambiFaith Muthambi, minister for the public service and administration in South Africa, will convene a provincial consultative engagement on the community development workers programme (CDWP) in the Eastern Cape Province on 15 January 2018

The joint consultative engagement with African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) is expected to take stock of the current state of the CDWP, how the programme could be strengthened to ensure improved service delivery and will empower CDWs on their role in the APRM second generation review process, which will commence in the 2018/19 financial year.

The consultative engagement with Gauteng CDWs will be the fourth of the nine planned provincial consultations, following engagements that the minister had with all the CDWs of Limpopo, Western Cape and Gauteng provinces respectively.

The provincial consultative engagements are part of a build-up, leading to the national conference of CDWs, which will be held this year.

Since the inception of the CDWP, the CDWs have been the conduits of information between government and the citizens and have contributed immensely in the speeding up of service delivery. Community development workers are also expected to play an important role of engaging the communities and collecting relevant information during the upcoming APRM second generation review process.
