# The City of Tshwane’s office of the council speaker has successfully concluded phase one of the establishment of ward committees. The role of ward committees is to promote community participation, inform the municipality of the needs of residents, and inform residents of municipal activities. Phase one had to do with civic education and awareness. The city says the second phase will be the nomination process. Each ward is required to elect six to ten members to serve on the ward committee structure to assist the ward councillor in executing their mandate.
