Lusikisiki Home Affairs gets a delivery shapeup

Monday, November 2, 2009

Pretoria - Home Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma will today unveil a joint Home Affairs-Lusikisiki Community Forum, to monitor the quality of service delivery in that community.

"It will monitor and ensure implementation of quality service delivery to the Lusikisiki community," her department said in a statement.

This will be the second such monitoring forum in the country, after the department launched one in uMzimkhulu in KwaZulu-Natal earlier this year.

The forum will consist of several government officials and members of the community including local chiefs, religious leaders and councillors.

During her visit to Lusikisiki, Dlamini Zuma is expected to use the opportunity to inspect facilities in the Lusikisiki Home Affairs offices, and visit the local Palmerton High School to interact with victims of forced marriages.

Dlamini Zuma's launch of the joint Home Affairs-Lusikisiki Community Forum takes place within the context of the overall government effort to involve communities in the process of governance under the theme "Together we can do more".
