THE Eastern Cape Planning Commission has kicked off a huge campaign to get people debating in different communities, workplaces and on social media to come up with a citizen-driven plan to develop the province.
The commissioners have hit the road, speaking to religious, traditional and other society leaders, to spark a dialogue which will ultimately lead to a plan that sets the direction of the province.
They are calling for citizens to speak out on their challenges on social media, through NGOs, churches, schools and mainstream media. These views will form part of a comprehensive document to be compiled by March, which will draw a clear picture of the state of the province.
