The municipality has recognized the national importance of the Youth, Women and Disabled person's days during its term of office. The staging of the Mayoral cup on a yearly basis whereby all local municipalities (Ulundi, uPhongolo, Nongoma, eDumbe and AbaQulusi) are competing with a view to selecting players for participating in the Inter-District Games has resulted in the selection of talented players in various national teams.

The Youth Capacity Building Workshop was held on 18 July 2005 and the Youth was capacitated on the Local Government Acts and their involvement in Local Government Processes.

The birth of the Zululand District Municipality Annual 56km marathon which is run from two towns (Nongoma to Ulundi interchangeably) and has been staged in cooperation with the Nongoma Athletics Club and the KwaZulu-Natal Athletics.
