Development Action Group (DAG) in collaboration with the Civic Action for Public Participation (CAPP) will be hosting a seminar on Ward Councillor Accountability. The event will be used as a learning session for civic organisations across Cape Town to understand the role and function of Ward Councillors and the available avenues to hold Councillors accountable.
It will review national legislation and guidelines, and also look at international precedents on Ward Councillor systems around the world. The event will take the form of a panel discussion with speakers who are experts on the topic of accountability and transparency in local government matters, followed by group discussion and reflection.
