CWDM takes first place in Governance Performance Index

The Cape Winelands District Municipality has been awarded the highest score out of 24 District Municipalities in South Africa by the research and advocacy non-profit organisation Good Governance Africa in the Governance Performance Index (GPI) report of 2024.

Good Governance Africa (GGA) rated South Africa’s 8 metros, 205 local municipalities, and 44 district municipalities.

“The Cape Winelands District Municipality appreciates and values the GGA rating of municipalities. This is a sterling and outstanding achievement to be rated as the number one district in the Category C1 district municipalities and we are extremely thankful and proud.

I salute our Municipal Manager, senior management, every employee, Council member, and structure for working consistently and as a team towards excellence and sustainable development.” States, Executive Mayor, Ald. (Dr) Elna von Schlicht.

The Mayor explains, “The criteria of service delivery, administration and governance, leadership and management and planning, monitoring and evaluation reflect the culture of Cape Winelands DM.

This also demonstrates our commitment to serve our citizens, our tourist sector, our agriculture sector, and our rural communities.

We congratulate the West Coast DM, Garden Route DM and Overberg DM for taking the first 4 places with Cape Winelands DM.

We further extend our congratulations to all five our local Municipalities who were all placed within the first five places in their respective categories.”

To ensure fair comparison, the 44 District Municipalities in South Africa are divided into two groups by the GPI. The CWDM forms part of the C1 group, whose functions exclude water and sanitation services.

All municipalities were evaluated according to four categories, with Sevice Delivery carrying the highest weight.

According to the GPI 2024 report, the Western Cape’s municipalities dominate the municipal performance in South Africa.
