2. The ideal leadership culture for the party’s MPs and Councillors

3. The opportunities and challenges that both the MPs and Councillors are currently facing

In the end, both the MPs and Councillors committed themselves to promote excellent service delivery, accountability, regular residents consultations and feedback, good governance and collaborative approaches for all party deployees in government.

Some of the challenges that were highlighted and in need of urgent resolution include the following, among others:

1. Procurement challenges chiefly caused by outdated laws/regulations

2. Restrictive laws that make it difficult for municipalities to fight corruption or maladministration

3. Alignment of all local government laws to the constitution.

4. Dilapidated and inadequate roads, water and sanitation infrastructure.

5. Shortage of land for urban expansion.

6. Inadequate funding on service delivery projects for local authorities.

The MDC re-affirms its commitment towards SMART, people centred and excellently administered municipalities.
