Minister Gigaba eradicates lack of service delivery

Minister Malusi Gigaba delivered his speech on the 28th of September 2014 his speech outlined progress to the implementation of government’ Programme of Action as announced by President Jacob Zuma during his State of the Nation Address earlier this year.

Gigaba said that it may be argued that South Africa has come a long way and as citizens all know “Rome was not built in a day” so is the new South Africa. “The progress noted in this briefing shows our resolve as a country to deliver on our future plans in order to achieve South Africa’s Vision for 2030, as the President said the aim of the National development Plan is to eradicate poverty, inequality and improve service delivery, we see that in most location progress is there and is indeed visible”.

 Often people feel like the government does not understand their frustrations and concerns, but the Minister made it clear that no  cry goes unheard, “In noting the progress we have made in the last 20 years in delivering on our vision, it is therefore important to note that as government we understand where we are and what needs to be done to enhance our performance and to improve efficiency across all the three spheres to better serve our people” said Minister Gigaba.

In his keynote address to the Presidential Local Government Summit (PLGS), in September 2014, under theme: “Back to Basics: serving our communities better” the galled upon the local government to “get the basics right” meaning going back to meeting the basic needs of the people things like proper water and sanitation, proper housing and security, granting social grant to those truly need it,

 “it would be a very good thing to see our government out and practice its obligations or perhaps should have done long ago but it would be better than not doing anything at all ,change is there but we want to see progress. I still believe that our government is capable of delivering if we give them the chance” says Mpumelelo Mkhize a residents of Thubelisha informal settlement.

After the heavy floods that occurred in Limpopo early this year, the National Disaster Management Centre (NDMC) allocated R9 802 410 to Limpopo province and R61 025 000 to Mpumalanga for emergency relief.

The total number of work opportunities created for July 2014 was 178 788.  The number of youth benefited was 77 167 (43%) and women were 134 815 (75%).  Municipalities with CWP sites were 155 in total.  Currently, there is an implementation of about 22 new sites in progress for the 2014/15 financial year,” said Gigaba.
