MBIZANA SOUTH AFRICA MAYOR EXCITED TO BE IN TOWN THIS WEEK 12/5/2017 8:42:14 AM
Strathroy-Caradoc has signed onto the Building Inclusive and Green Municipalities Initiative with the South African Municipality of MBizana. The partnership was set up with support of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and the Government of Canada. The 3-year deal means that both towns will work together and share information to help improve both local communities. MBizana's Honorable Mayor Theodora Mafumbatha says that she is very excited to bring new ideas to her community.
One thing she did immediately notice was the disproportionate amount of men on Strathroy-Caradoc's council, saying that in MBizana, the council is split 50/50 between men and women. This is the Honorable Mayor's first trip to Canada so if you see her, be sure to welcome her to Strathroy-Caradoc.
