Mathebe further said that they acknowledged that the pace of service delivery in Sekhukhune district was not pleasing.

“Fellow residents, in February when we accepted the responsibility to serve you, we committed to pursuing a sound, efficient, effective, transparent, and accountable administration. We recognize the importance of good governance and that without it, our municipality will not function properly to meet your needs,” said Mathebe.

She added that they were disappointed about the qualified audit opinion the district municipality obtained in the previous financial year.

Mathebe the municipality has instructed the municipal management team, working with the audit committee to attend to all issues raised by the Auditor General (AG).

“Management must meet every week to attend to all these issues raised by the AG and report progress to the mayoral committee every month,” said Mathebe.
