Mathabatha concerned about Limpopo municipalities


Premier Stan Mathabatha indicated that municipalities will be under the microscope in the next five years.

According to the Auditor General’s report, all 27 municipalities in Limpopo, including 22 local and five districts, have failed to receive clean audit outcomes. The AG says the collapse of VBS Mutual Bank will add to service delivery problems in Limpopo in the future. Eight of the province’s municipalities had illegally invested in VBS Mutual Bank.
Speaking during the opening of the provincial legislature, Mathabatha said the performance of municipalities remains a worrying factor.
“The fact that not even a single municipality or municipal entity in this Province managed to receive clean audit is a matter of great concern. “Even more worrying is the fact that the number of adverse and disclaimer audit opinion have increased. We simply can no longer proceed in this fashion.”

The Premier has urged residents who’re disgruntled with service delivery not to embark on violent protest actions. He highlighted that they will spend more than
one billion rand on the improvement of road infrastructure across the province
this financial year.
Some opposition parties in Limpopo have expressed dissatisfaction with plans that Premier Mathabatha outlined in his state of the province address.
Jossey Buthana, EFF leader said the people of Limpopo are being taken for a ride. “People of Limpopo have been insulted by Mathabatha to an extreme. He
spoke about the new dawn as if he is a new person.”
He says plans that pertain to rail transportation, refurbishment of school infrastructure and job creation are not financially feasible.
