Thabazimbi Local Municipality: Mayoral Festive Message 2020

The year 2020 has indeed turned out to be challenging for all of us. At the outset as a country we began the year already facing economic challenges.

The Covid-19 virus emerged in numerous countries before reaching our shores during March 2020 resulting in the declaration of the pandemic and the various levels of lockdown that we have all experienced in Thabazimbi Local Municipality and South Africa.

All our citizens have experienced hardship during this year through the restriction of movement and activities resulting in many vulnerable residents experiencing hunger, the loss of jobs and dignity as well as increased levels of safety concerns.

The Thabazimbi Local Municipality will continue to play a facilitating role to assist in improving the safety, dignity and wellness of our residents.

We wish to thank all our employees and citizens for all their sacrifices and patience during this year as we have tackled new behavioural patterns in dealing with Covid-19.

TLM welcomes all visitors to Thabazimbi and its surrounding towns over the festive holiday season and wish them excellent weather, safety, and good times enjoyed with friends and family.

Please remember to adhere to the Covid-19 regulations especially during the holiday season and to continue wearing masks, washing hands, applying social distancing and staying home when sick.

We are all in this together as we are facing these challenges. Where possible, we should see how we can assist those less fortunate than ourselves.


On behalf of the Councillors and Council personnel, we wish you a Christmas that gives contentment happiness and love, we wish one and all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!”
God bless you all!! God bless Thabazimbi.

Cllr John Michael Fischer –
Mayor of Thabazimbi Local Municipality
