While the country was mourning with families of the soldiers who died in the massacre which took place in the Central African Republic – the Executive Mayor of Mahikeng, Ms Lena Miga visited the family of one of the soldiers who lost his life serving his country. She passed messages of condolences to Karabo Matsheka’s family in Ramosadi Village, highlighting the sadness of the fact that he was only 26 years old when he met his untimely death. “We the Mahikeng Local Municipality, together with the Members of the Mayoral Committee would like to say that we are with you during this time of sorrow, and believe that this too shall pass. Even though death is not a pleasant circumstance to be undertaking, let us celebrate Karabo’s  life in a way that remains resilient in our minds that he died fighting for his country , and that should not be in vein. Our doors will be open for you, should you need any further assistance in making his burial one that is dignified and fitting for a hero, May his soul rest in peace”


Mahikeng Local Municipality is undergoing a process of establishing a recycling forum for Mahikeng, which will be launched on the 12th April 2013, at the Civic Center by the Community Services Directorate. There will be a 2-day build up campaign taking place before the actual launch at different schools for educational purposes on the 10th and 11th April.

The move to establish this ground breaking initiative comes as a result of the obligation in terms of the National Environmental Management: Waste Act (Act 59 of 2008) to incorporate waste reduction, re-use recovery and recycling in waste management activities. To this end, the  Community Services Directorate has been spearheading efforts to bring together all individuals and entities in Mahikeng involved in Waste Recycling. This culminated in the formation of the Mahikeng Recycling Forum being established after much needed consultation on the 4th May 2012, where the constitution of the forum was adopted and an executive committee was elected. The forum is made up of individuals and burners involved in waste recycling.
The executive committee of the forum then embarked on a fact finding mission to Potchefstroom , where they benchmarked on the Tlokwe Recycling Forum to see if they were on the right track. Based on the findings at Tlokwe, the Mahikeng Recycling Forum was able to put together a structure that would work for Mahikeng Local Municipality, in order to make it a resounding success.



NEDBANK expanded their wings on the 13th March 2013, when they opened their second branch in Mahikeng. The Municipality was represented by MMC Lomo and MMC Mphengesi on behalf of the Executive Mayor, Lena Miga. In addition to the Launch, Nedbank also made donations to Madiba Combined School and Tau primary school, as part of its Corporate Social Investment initiatives. “Today, we are humbled by the heartrending gesture that Nedbank has made by choosing to partner with Mahikeng Local Municipality in delivering these much needed donations to Madiba Combined School and Tau primary school, as a build up towards the launch of the Mahikeng branch”, said MMC Lomo.
