New premier to intervene in municipalities

MBOMBELA- For the first 100 days in office, newly sworn in premier, Mandla Ndlovu has promised to visit all municipalities.

This is to get a better understanding of their challenges. However, he said he would assist each one without interfering. “I will not hesitate to intervene within the prescripts of the law should it become clear that our people are not getting the services they deserve,” he said.

He further said the people have spoken, and government is aware that they yearn for sustainable quality services including portable water, improved sanitation facilities, improved road infrastructure, a safe environment, good health services, to name a few. 

“These services will never be brought by mere speeches. We need to go beyond our comfort zones and deliver these services to our people together.”

Ndlovu was sworn in on Tuesday where he also announced Members of the Executive Council. The cabinet comprises of men and women who showed resilience during election campaigns and in all aspects of his resilient work among communities.
