Half a billion to be used to accelerate service delivery in Municipalities
24 February 2015
The Congress of South African Trade Union in Limpopo said it supports government’s service delivery package to be used to accelerate service delivery in the Vhembe District Municipality.
However Cosatu has also raised concerns regarding the package saying government needs to assist all municipalities in the province.
Minister of Cooperative Governance Pravin Gordhan the package will amount to half a billion.
Cosatu’s Provincial Secretary Gerald Twala says while we support this particular package, however as Cosatu we feel government cannot be reactive and selective in the providing services to our people.
It is common knowledge that people all over the province in all districts have got a crisis in terms of service delivery and we believe that the government must then proactively develop an integrated plan that will speak to the crisis of all municipalities in the province Twala added.
