The Lesedi Local Municipality encompasses a broad range of areas from relatively developed urban centres to the rural areas that surround them. Given the disparities within its administrative jurisdiction, the municipal budget’s focus is on the most underdeveloped areas. Of the total capital programme, approximately 60% is earmarked for development where infrastructure is weakest or deficient. The targets of the budget are in the provision of basic services, such as water, the promotion of a safe environment, and the maintenance of existing infrastructure.
After fully assessing the market place Lesedi chose to implement Fujitsu’s Local Government Solution as it had a proven track record of delivering major business benefits in a short period of time, and was already implemented in many other Municipalities in Africa.
