Western Cape calls for cooperation to solve Knysna service delivery problems

The Western Cape Government has called for cooperation between all spheres of government to resolve the service delivery crisis in Knysna.

It is reported that the municipality has experienced several service delivery challenges recently that include lack of water delivery and refuse removal.

The provincial government says the Knysna Municipality must take responsibility for the service delivery failures.

Premier Alan Winde says must work with the province to resolve the challenges.

“If the municipality does not adopt this recovery plan, the WCG will consider initiating an intervention in the municipality under section 139 of the Constitution, but our fervent hope is that the municipality works with us. I am particularly concerned about the potential disaster that is developing around safe drinking water, sewage and refuse management,” said Premier Winde.
