Western Cape's SOPA2022 to be held in Velddrif

The Western Cape’s State of the Province Address (SOPA) for 2022 will be held at the Velddrif Town Hall, in Velddrif in the West Coast, on Tuesday, 15 February 2022.

The Speaker of the Western Cape Provincial Parliament (WCPP), Masizole Mnqasela, made the announcement on Wednesday.

Members of the WCPP will the following day, debate on the State of the Province Address.

The State of the Province Address is a speech made by the Premier or provincial head. The event usually marks the official opening of the Provincial Parliament. The speech is delivered in front of members of the provincial executive, including the Speaker, Deputy Speaker and the Secretary.

Last year’s SOPA was held in Genadendal.

The SOPA programme is yet to be released, but Premier Alan Winde said unemployment will be on top of his agenda

‘’That is why our focus must now turn to fight the second pandemic of unemployment, which continues unabated. It needs to be fought with the same passion, courage and innovation so that we roll back poverty, hunger and crime in the Western Cape. This will be my top priority in the year ahead, and I look forward to reflecting on this in my speech.’’

‘’I would like to thank the community of Velddrif in the Bergrivier Municipality for hosting us this year, and I look forward to engaging with you around the speech so that your views and your expectations for the year ahead are incorporated into our government’s plans,’’ Winde added.
