Address by Minister of Communications Faith Muthambi on Communication Collaboration at Local Government Level

Ladies and gentlemen

There can be no important responsibility than that of communicating with the masses of our people about the developments taking place in their own communities and affecting their lives. Local government remains strategic in this regard.

South Africa’s local Governments are the spheres of government which are closest to the people and deal most directly with the people. A local government is responsible for true democracy and mass participation amongst each of South Africa’s citizens within their specific locality.

Minister of Communications Faith Muthambi’s remarks at the sectoral Imbizo held in East London

Thank you very much for responding to our invitation to discuss the issues pertinent to communications in your locality. Given the challenges that are facing our industry I thought it is important to reflect on the big issue of media transformation. It is key that in order to get the narrative of our country right we must be serious about changing both the management of the media and the ownership patterns of our media.
