Stellenbosch Munisipaliteit

Councillor Wilhelmina (Mienie) Petersen has been elected as the new Speaker of the Stellenbosch Municipality Council. She will serve as the first female Speaker since the establishment of the Council in 2000. 

Nelson Mandela famously said: “It is in your hands to make of the world a better place.”

The Stellenbosch Municipality did just that by undertaking numerous initiatives on Mandela Day, assisting residents in need and continuing to build on Madiba’s legacy of a united South Africa.

The ESKOM blocks that apply to the Stellenbosch Municipal area are Block 2, Block 8 and Block 16. 

Die Munisipaliteit is bewus van die ongelukkigheid van inwoners oor die installering van optiese veselkabels in woongebiede. ʼn Paar inwoners het die Munisipaliteit gekontak en hul ontevredenheid en misnoeë met die opgrawings uitgespreek. As Burgemeester en inwoner van Stellenbosch, het ek volle begrip vir die klagtes en verstaan dat die installeringsproses groot ongerieflikheid veroorsaak.   Graag wil ek van die geleentheid gebruik maak om duidelikheid te skep rondom die installasieproses en die Munisipaliteit se rol hierin.

Last night, 22 May 2018, unrest broke out after a community meeting was disrupted by aggrieved residents in Kayamandi. The meeting was aimed at addressing housing challenges, following heightened tensions after incidents of attempted land invasion in the area.

The attempts occurred largely on private agricultural property with the potential of spilling over onto municipal land. The owner of the property as well as the Municipality obtained court interdicts to have the unlawfully erected structures removed.
