New Sizakala centre for uMlazi's KwaMnyandu mall
​The eThekwini Municipality is accelerating its programme to bring municipal services closer to people, especially in the previously underserviced areas.

Mayor James Nxumalo today, 19/12/14, officially opened a new Sizakala Customer Service Centre at KwaMnyandu Shopping Mall to extend accessibility to government services for residents of Umlazi, which is the second biggest township in the country. The area was previously serviced by one Sizakala Centre at Umlazi MegaCity Mall.

Nxumalo said: “This state of the art centre will benefit residents as it is conveniently and accessibly located. Customers can pay their bills, utilise our e-Careers portal and get any other information about local government that they require. As a democratic government, we want to see the lives of all people improved.”

“South Africa has changed. We want to continue to promote a non-racial and diverse society where everyone lives in harmony. This facility is yet another sterling development in the township of Umlazi,” he said.

Acting Head of Sizakala Centres, Harry Harripersad, said the Municipality has established 33 Sizakala Centres and two Thusong Centres within the municipal boundaries. “These centres are the face of the Municipality. We are here to provide our citizens with any assistance they may require and trained staff will provide customers with friendly and helpful services.”

Ward Councillor Nomthandazo Shabalala said that the centre will indeed benefit the community. “We are pleased with this development as it provides access to government services,” she said. Delly Paneng, a 26 year old job seeker, frequently uses the e-Careers service to apply for employment within the Municipality.

“I am happy about this Sizakala Centre being opened here because I do not have to travel long distances or pay lots of money to print my CV to apply for a job. I am grateful to eThekwini Municipality for establishing this centre for the residents of Umlazi.”
