Maluleke said that local government finances continued to worsen, 27% of the municipalities are concerned about the health of their financial status especially in several Communities where it is believed that the struggling to make payments.
The biggest deterrent to the success of these municipalities is the revenue not collected. Creditors are not paid on time – which is a major indicator that the system is under significant pressure under the current workers that are employed by the government, it is quite clear that the other underserved or the system is just not efficient enough and it is not being improved.
