McKenzie has vowed to turn his district into “another Dubai”.
“We will turn this place into Dubai. We are fixing the basics like bucket toilets, potholes and jobs for all. We will start an ambitious construction project like never seen before after my 100-day mark. Our people are cynical because of past heartaches from politicians. I’m different.”
He has opened a protective clothing factory, a bakery and a tar plant in the municipality and refurbished a local swimming pool, which residents complained they have been waiting years to have fixed.
“I have not used any finances from the municipality, not a single cent. I don’t intend to use any money until I have helped stabilise the finances of the whole district,” said McKenzie.
