Come with me if you've ever pondered about the future of law and lawlessness in South Africa. Join me as we discuss if the rule of law benefits some people more than others. Take my hand as we examine how precedent is established.

The Cabinet of KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala has decided to keep eight failing municipalities under administration until April 30.

During a meeting of the Provincial Executive Council this week, the decision was made to maintain the municipalities under administration, which includes the local municipalities of Msunduzi and Mtubatuba.

Section 139 of the Constitution empowers the provincial executive to intervene in a municipality if it fails to meet its legislative executive obligations. Report on the state of the towns, which are facing major financial and administrative concerns.

It is in the towns' best interests to extend all present interventions and allow them to continue to receive support from the federal government as a result of the issues they face.

The municipalities of Mpofana, Msunduzi, Inkosi Langalibalele, UThukela, Umzinyathi, Abaqulusi, Mtubatuba, and uMkhanyakude are facing major financial concerns, including unfulfilled budgets, huge budget deficits, Eskom power outages, and infrastructure and service delivery challenges.

Some are tormented by instability and parallel structures, while others are mired in never-ending legal fights that divert attention away from providing services, Mabaso said in a statement.

At the end of April, he stated, the Provincial Executive Council would conduct the appropriate analyses and considerations on the municipalities' fate.

The Provincial Executive Council thinks that expanded municipal interventions are in the best interests of the population covered by these municipalities, and that they will benefit from the support of other sectors of government as required by the Constitution.
