    2. A submission for the Impumelelo Innovations Award 2005 2 BACKGROUND Thulamela Municipality is a new Municipality that came into existence in 2000 and falls under the Vhembe District Municipality in Limpopo Province. Thulamela Municipality is not licensed by the NER to distribute electricity, which limits its ability to provide electricity services to its Communities. Ha-Muraga Village is a deep rural village and is about 30km east of Thohoyandou Town, Limpopo Province. This village is comprised of about 250 households.

    3. A submission for the Impumelelo Innovations Award 2005 3 PROJECT INNOVATIVENESS There were no basic services for which households of the Hamuraga village could be made to pay the Municipality for, prior to the commencement of this partnership. Irrespective of the rurality of the area, all households within the village are encouraged to pay R1 000 towards electrification. The Municipality subsidizes them per house connection. The project having been initiated by the Community, is solely owned by them.

    4. A submission for the Impumelelo Innovations Award 2005 4 PROJECT SUSTAINABILITY OVER THE NEXT THREE YEARS AND BEYOND The agreement/arrangement with Eskom is for the handover of the Customers and the electrical network to Eskom on completion. Eskom then becomes responsible for the maintenance of the electrical network and the servicing of the resulting Customers.

    5. A submission for the Impumelelo Innovations Award 2005 5 ECONOMIC BENEFITS Some of the households have since then upgraded their Spaza Shops. The existing shopping complex has been upgraded. The community can now afford to buy perishables to store at their own homes in refrigerators . The number of electrical equipments such as TVs, radios, etc has increased significantly. This had a significant impact on the nearby towns namely, Malamulele and Thohoyandou Shopping centres. The village now has individuals with welding machines manufacturing windows and doorframes though at a small scale.

    6. A submission for the Impumelelo Innovations Award 2005 6 SOCIAL BENEFITS Though it cant be attributed only to this project, the Matric results of the Thase High School at the Village has improved. The perception created and being shared by the school principal is that the project has played a major role. About 80% of the households are now benefiting from Free Basic Electricity. The community has been relieved of the frustrations confronting them during funeral arrangements. The hiring of generators has become an issue of the past.

    7. A submission for the Impumelelo Innovations Award 2005 7 IMPACT ON THE SURROUNDING VILLAGES AND THE MUNICIPALITY IN PARTICULAR A few villages have since then decided to emulate these partnership approach.

    14. A submission for the Impumelelo Innovations Award 2005 14 CONCLUSION These partnership Projects are creating and encouraging the culture of paying for services rendered by the Municipality. The already electrified proclaimed towns are opting for street/road surfacing partnership. Our residents in the urban areas are now clearing their long outstanding service debts which was standing at millions of Rands while continuing to pay for their current accounts. This partnership is now showing signs of developing to outside the borders of our Municipality or our District Municipality. The Provincial Government is now encouraging all municipalities in our Province to learn from this partnership and we feel very humbled to share our experiences with the rest of our colleagues for the sake of humanity.
