A big bouquet of flowers to the Municipality of Jeffreys Bay. At 01h03 on the morning of January 25th whilst patrolling I phoned the emergency number to report a leakage in Woodpecker Crescent, Aston Bay. When I drove past there again at 01h50 the leakage was repaired.

Bouquet to Maureen Botman, Kouga Municipality Switchboard. I phone in once a month with my utility reading. She is always prompt to answer and friendly. I appreciate you Maureen. Keep up the good work. - Linda van Zyl

For years the problem of the bosslaapers in the region of the open ground between lifestyle estate, R102, Mentors and St Francis Street has been addressed. Last year the veld there was set alight by them, causing danger to the very house that was burnt down yesterday 31-08-2016. Two weeks ago they set the grass alight at Vrieskas. Residents in this area do not seem phased, that if this problem manifests itself and is allowed to continue it is going to grow out of hand.

Jeffreys Bay Municipality falls under the Kouga Municipality.

The Kouga Local Municipality is located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, west of Nelson Mandela Bay, and forms part of the Sarah Baartman District Municipality. It consists of nine towns, namely, Jeffreys Bay, Humansdorp, St Francis Bay, Cape St Francis, Oyster Bay, Patensie, Hankey, Loerie and Thornhill, as well as various smaller settlements and agricultural nodes.

While Kouga has traditionally been characterized by economic activities largely focused on tourism and agriculture, the area has been positioning itself as one of the energy hubs of South Africa. Two wind farms are already in operation at Jeffreys Bay and Oyster Bay, and more are in the pipeline.

Kouga is also home to Thyspunt, one of the preferred sites for a new nuclear power station to serve South Africa's growing energy requirements.

The area is governed by a Council of 29 councilors, headed by Executive Mayor Daphne Kettledas and Speaker Magdalene Dlomo.


Kouga, a safe, equitable, and harmonious home, with prosperous and sustainable livelihoods for all its people.


To create a better life for its people by providing effective and efficient service delivery, enabling the sustainable harnessing of its environmental assets, supported by inclusive governance and stakeholder participation, derived from the share values of its legislated mandate.
