President Cyril Ramaphosa will on Friday interact with the community of Sekhukhune District, Limpopo province at the Presidential Imbizo. The eighth District Development Model (DDM) Imbizo is themed “Leave No One Behind”.
The DDM seeks to ensure an integrated, district-based, service delivery approach aimed at fast-tracking service delivery.
The first part of the visit by President Ramaphosa will be at the R37 Driekop-Steelpoort Interchange Road Project. He will then proceed to Motodi Sports Complex, Ga-Motodi.
The Imbizo is a platform for face-to-face engagement between citizens and senior government leaders that holds the administration to account. It also allows the government to consult and brief communities on development and service delivery in the relevant area.

The engagement is also aimed at fostering collaboration between government, residents, businesses, community-based organisations and traditional leadership in transforming all districts in South Africa.
“President Ramaphosa will engage directly with the communities and stakeholders in Sekhukhune. He will also address their concerns and seek solutions to unblock challenges hindering integrated service delivery,” the presidency said.
“Sekhukhune District has been identified by the Limpopo Provincial Government as a district with immense potential for economic growth, given its abundant mineral resources and water supply.
Leading up to the dialogue with the community at the DDM Presidential Imbizo, government leaders from all three spheres have interacted with key stakeholders and paid visits to service delivery projects within the four local municipalities in the Sekhukhune District Municipality,” concluded the statement.
