I wish to firstly compliment YOU the municipality for the general good upkeep of Jeffreys Bay. In comparison to other cities and towns which continue to degenerate into sadly unrecognizable states Kouga Municipality are doing a sterling job in comparison, which all Jay Bayer's are grateful for as your efforts help to bring much needed tourism and revenue to the town and greater Kouga Area. However, there is always room for improvements. I wish to draw your attention to the deplorable state of the Kabeljauws Lagoon and in particular the appalling amount of dog excrement on the beach and lagoon waterside. People walking their dogs simply don't care or pick up after their dogs have defaecated - its a disgrace. Something MUST be done about this!

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

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.
