Members of the National Council of Provinces will from Monday embark on a week long visit to their respective provinces to check progress on service delivery.

The Provincial week was established to obligate the council into ensuring that provincial interest is taken into account.

NCOP Chairperson in the Western Cape, Nosipho Mntwanambi says that “We want to see whether at local government level, service is really rendered to the people, and what are the bottlenecks if there are any.”

She says that they want to see “how do we make sure that if there are any bottlenecks we speak to relevant MEC and ministers?”

Mntwanambi says that in the “Western Cape we’ll be focusing in housing in the De Doorns, we will also be looking at the report of the Oudtshoorn municipality.

The council will also be looking at Cape Town’s programmes and its Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) programmes, she said.

A report with recommendations will be tabled before the NCOP for debate.
