Ministerial team making inroads in North West

Friday, May 18, 2018

The Inter-Ministerial Task Team (IMTT) on the North West province has concluded its consultation meetings with the stakeholders in Ditsobotla and Madibeng Local Municipalities. 

Led by the Minister in the Presidency for Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, the IMTT consultation meetings were attended by various stakeholders, including council members, labour, business and civil society. 

"We are satisfied with the cooperation from the stakeholders in the two municipalities and we will do an assessment of the issues raised and come back on follow-up visits," said Dlamini-Zuma. 

The Ministers also met with the National Office Bearers of National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union (NEHAWU), led by President Mzwandile Makwayiba and General Secretary Zola Saphetha to address issues raised in their memorandum received by the Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi Wednesday on behalf of the IMTT.

Dlamini-Zuma reported that the matters raised by NEHAWU have already been referred to the relevant Ministers for their attention.

Both parties have agreed to further engagements towards the resolution of issues raised.

These engagements with stakeholders form part of the fact-finding work that is in progress.

The IMTT will verify the information received from the stakeholders and report back to Cabinet on a biweekly basis. 

Dlamini-Zuma said government remains committed to resolving service delivery issues in the North West provincial and local government. 

"We would like to assure South Africans that necessary interventions are being put in place to restore normality in the North West province," said the Minister. -
